I keep getting rage spammed via google products and it is getting on my last nerve. First I was getting a ton of a spam events shared through google calendar. I figured out how to stop that and now I'm getting spam documents shared with me. You guys have some serious spam issues in your non-gmail products and need to figure this out asap! In the mean time is there a way I can stop everyone from sharing documents with me?

Hi there,
 
I'm sorry that's happening. To report a violation: On a computer, go to drive.google.com. Right-click the file you want to report and click Report abuse. Choose the type of abuse found in the file.
 
You can read more about reporting abusive content in this article from the Google Help Center: Report a violation.

That did not answer my question. How do I turn off the ability for people to share docs with me?
marked this as an answer
There isn't any way at this time to block someone from sharing a document with you. As long as someone has your email address (or can guess what it is), a document can be shared with you.

Please report the violation per my instructions above.

So people are free to spam via google docs and the only thing we can do is report each individual case? You guys need to do something about this.

I am not just one person. Scroll up. Google the other locked threads. I have had 5 spam messages so fart today I can't actually dismiss on mobile and all it takes is one accidental tap. I've tried giving feedback through the app. I do it every single time. Nothing has been done and this has been going on for years. This lack of care for customer security is astounding.
