Recently I have received several Nigerian-like scam emails. These emails are different from those I received before in that their content is in both English and Vietnamese. The original content is in English, and the Vietnamese content is translated from English using Google Translate.

Email with Vietnamese content

Email with English content

In this type of phishing, hacker employs Google Translate to translate the scam emails into the language of the targeted victims, which make users more easily fall prey to. It’s likely that there will be waves of phishing scams exploiting Google Translate in the coming time. Users should be cautious with emails which seem to be automatically translated, emails informing of pot or prize winning or a discount campaign.
