If You Receive An Email From The Better Business Bureau– Do Not Open It
The Better Business Bureau is alerting people that if you get an email from them, do not open it. It contains a very dangerous virus. If you get it, the email is purporting to be from a bbb.org email address about a recently filed complaint. It is a scam. The BBB has a similar policy as financial institutions and charities – They do not send complaints as an email attachment.
The email also appears to direct people to the BBB website. The BBB advises any person or business that receives the e-mail to take the following steps: Do not click on any links or reply to the message, completely delete the message from your inbox, and make sure that you run a full virus scan on your computer if you did click on any links.
Here’s what the email might look like:
If you get one of these bogus emails, you can help the BBB track down the perpetrator, by forwarding the message to firstname.lastname@example.org and also send it to bbb.org and then delete it. If you have any questions, please call the BBB at 877-478-8083.
The BBB is always here to help us out, now it’s our turn to help them.
