If an official-looking email claims BBB received a complaint about you, it's likely fake and downloads a computer virus.

ALERT Malicious Complaint Email Claiming It’s From BBB

BBB Image

 

Better Business Bureau is issuing an urgent SCAM alert cautioning businesses and consumers about an email that looks like it is from BBB, with the subject line “Complaint from your customers.” This e-mail is fraudulent; ignore its contents and delete it immediately. If you have already clicked on a link in the e-mail, run a full virus scan of your computer.

The e-mails have return addresses that BBB does not use (one example is riskmanager@bbb.org) and it is signed with the address of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the national office of the BBB system. The e-mail contains a link to a non-BBB web site. Do NOT click on the link.

BBB is working with law enforcement to determine its source and stop the fraudulent campaign.

It's always good to receive these scam updates.  I haven't heard of this one before.  But I generally hover the mouse over links to see where they are going before Ill even consider thinking about a click.

Dear Jeanne and Ralph,
Thanks for stopping by!
Have you ever checked rumors out at Snopes.com? They are the go-to site for confirmation about rumor or real scam. The BBB issued this warning on December 7, 2011.
Have a happy day -
Lynn
