    Spam in Google Drive

    Is there anything I can do to prevent spam in Google Drive?

    Yesterday, I got notification in my phone from Drive that someone with Russian name who I don't know shared some PDF file with me that had photo inside how to make a money online. I removed it and reported. I've never received spam in Google Drive before. Today I googled it and found out that other people are also receiving spam, some of them are even getting pornographic spam and one guy even said that his wife left him because of this lol (Spam in my drive folder . . .what can you do? - Google Drive Help). Furthermore, I found out that we can't do anything about it, because Google automatically shares files with you even from strangers. So, there's really nothing we can do to prevent those spam shares?
