Calendar spam, the next nuisance?

Tomorrow morning at 5am where I can enjoy an advanced fee scam! I’ve had these in email format before but never in my calendar…

Screenshot of some spam in my calendar

Oddly there are no emails about this in my inbox and I sure didn’t tell it to add one to my calendar. As there is no ‘Report Spam’ link for calendar entries I had to return to calendar view, delete it from there and hope nothing else shows up.

Digital Inspiration also wrote about this and provide a link to Google’s spam reporting page.

    Sucky. If this came from a mail you can stop it like this:

    1. Click Settings
    2. In the General tab, change 'Automatically add invitations to my calendar' to 'No, only display invitations to which I have replied'
    3. Save

    If the invite email ended up in your spam box I'm surprised it went through the calendar processing, but this should stop it anyway.

    I can't find any trace of the email itself...

    Have changed that setting anyway, thanks! :)

    Spam is a fact of life on the internet. I expect it every where - so this don't surprise me much.
