I have recieved an email inviting me to view a shared Dropbox document. This person did not send me this, and they do not have a Dropbox account. How do I handle this?

Re: Getting spam from Dropbox


Hello @Magalloway, thanks for reaching out to us about this. 


If you received a shared folder notification or a shared link, the first step is to check if it came from one of our official domains.


If you don't recognize the sender, you can forward the suspicious email to and have our team investigate.


Have a look through those and let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
