Study: One in four emails from a federal .gov account is a fraud

October 24, 2017

More than 25 percent of emails from federal email addresses are not actually from the government, according to an email security company with extensive federal contracts.  The figure comes from a study released Thursday by the contractor Agari. Agari fights email fraud on behalf of more than 400 federal websites, including the official sites of the departments of Health and Human Services and Veterans Affairs, the Census Bureau and the Senate.
