The Better Business Bureau Dispute Phishing Email is Still Out There

Oy, they just don’t stop, do they?  Instead of sending the typical job, delivery, bank, or inheritance message, these scammers are using the an organizational name and logo to trick victims into compliance.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has been around for years, and no one wants a bad report floating around for potential customers or partners to see.  Scammers know it, and are sending messages to any and every home and small business owner out there.   This is what I received:


From: ( likely an innocent victim, but better safe than sorry)

Subject:  Your Urgent Response Is Required

To whom it may concern:

Re: Case # 727760572255
