The Better Business Bureau is issuing an urgent scam alert cautioning businesses and consumers about another email that is spreading across the country that looks like it is from BBB. The subject line “Complaint from your customers.”
This email is fraudulent; ignore its contents and delete it immediately. If you have already clicked on a link in the email, run a full virus scan of your computer.
The return email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (an address BBB does not use) and it is signed with the address of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the national office of the BBB system. The email contains a link to a non-BBB website. Do NOT click on the link.
BBB is working with law enforcement to determine its source and stop the fraudulent campaign.
