How Google Identifies Suspicious Collect Request?
Google Pay uses Machine Learning Methods (a complex set of computer instructions called Algorithms) to identify whether a transaction is Trustful or Suspicious.
If Google Pay machine learning method found a suspicious transaction, it shows the user a spam notification. Then, it’s up to the user to decline the transaction or not.
