I get always mails with a subject "CLAIMS" or "REPLY URGENTLY" or "CHECK YOUR MAIL". I want to report this to Gmail, so that in the future I will not get such mails.

Currently, I am opening those mails and clicking "report as phishing". Though my reporting, I can see these mails always.

Please tell me what to do so that I can evade such hacking/phishing mails.

I might be able to point you in the direction. We use Google Apps for business, and when suspicious emails gets out of hand, I do 2 things.

  1. I follow this link to report abuse > which takes me to the phishing section, instructing to do pretty much what you have done by marking mails as phishing, but also provides this form to report and submit the phishing activity.

  2. Alternatively, I setup a filter rule targeting the sender's address / subject / content and either let it skip the inbox, be marked as spam, or let it be deleted completely.

There is really nothing else you can do besides reporting them as spam or phishing. Eventually they will start skipping your inbox and go straight to the spam folder.

  • But they aren't skipping to spam folder.. to be frank those types of mails are increasing day by day. Anyway, I understand your point that we can't do anything further. thanks :) – Mr_Green Jul 30 '14 at 9:59
  • Mark it also as spam then. After you’ve marked it as phishing. – Alex Jul 30 '14 at 10:02
