BBB has been the victim of a phishing scam for over a year. Scammers have just launched a campaign involving supposed BBB complaints. The emails carry an attached “complaint form” that is actually a virus! Many were emailed yesterday and demand a response by January 23rd. The emails purport to come from the Chicago BBB.
If you have received this, or any other suspicious emails from someone claiming to be from the BBB, please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org to help us shut down the scammers as quickly as possible. Do not click on any links or download attachments.
