Updated: May 1

"COVID-19 phishing emails have been bombarding inboxes since the virus began to spread in December and January. Cybercriminals have tried to push all kinds of scams to the masses using coronavirus-related topics, headers and organizations to get people to open malicious emails, files, or links. 

Complaints about phishing attacks have tripled since the concerns about COVID-19 became widespread, according to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center.

Cybersecurity company INKY pored through the months of coronavirus-themed phishing emails and complied a report on where most of them were coming from, finding that the majority of IP addresses found in email headers originated from the United States."
