Definitely a scam then. Does eset detect anything?

Since the scam doesn't seem to open in a supported browser, there's probably nothing you could do to block or remove it. Just be vigilant and pay attention to what you tap.

I downloaded all these files and scanned them via ESET product. And it didn't detect any threats. Why?

Since I have no clue what files you downloaded, please upload them to a safe location and drop me a personal message with a download link. Note that ESET Mobile Security for Android can detect only threats in Android applications.

Just out of curiosity - are you using your phone to test malware?

Those are Office documents and jpg images. As I wrote, on Android only Android applications are scanned due to limitations of the operating system and hardware too.

I use desktop for that.

I scanned these files via ESET Windows product, not Android. And jpg files are created via Google Drawings, so they have malicious links. Obviously you can't see that, but on my Google Drive I can see that. For example. Now the link on this picture is dead, but when I got this spam file on my Google Drive it was alive.

This yes, but any other from my list which I sent to Macros in private massage no. See that:

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

Example 4

Example 5

Example 6

And several others with restricted access, so I can't give links on them.

Think a bit on what you are requesting.

Eset detects spam/malware in e-mail via a plug-in scanner for any of the e-mail client software Eset supports. This is possible because the e-mail is being scanned while it is being downloaded to the receiving device.

Google Drive is cloud based storage. Eset has no way to determine what is or isn't spam/malware on that storage medium. I assume that if a Google Drive file was actually downloaded and malicious, Eset would detect it.

As I said before, I downloaded them and scanned them via on-demand scan of Windows product. My above posts are still actual.

These screenshots just show threats, not result of ESET scan.

I downloaded the Example 1 link you posted as a .jpeg file. I submitted it to VirusTotal and there were zero detection's for it.

If these files contain malicious links as you claim, then no other AV solution can detect them.

If most AVs are week, then it's a reason why ESET should be week also. Where is a logic?

Jpg files with some scam text in the images are not subject to detection. While some of the other Office files contained Russian scam links, they pointed to non-existing urls. Again, just scam, no real threats.

But scam are always spam, right? Scam files can't be not spam. ESET products protect against spam, so they shout detect them.
