Information from the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau

SPECIAL ALERT: New phishing attack uses BBB name

The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau (BBB) has heard from several people during this first week in May who have received emails that claim to be from the BBB regarding a consumer complaint.

These emails contain an attachment that, if opened, will download a virus to the recipient's computer. The emails appear as if they are being sent by info@bbb.org. They are not! They are being sent by a scammer using the BBB's name. Legitimate BBB complaint emails will come from an email address with the suffix @[local BBB's name].bbb.org.

If you should receive one of these emails, please delete it immediately without attempting to open the attachment. If you should have any questions regarding the legitimacy of an email from the BBB, please call our Member Hotline: 414-847-6060 or 800-273-1024.

Thank you,

Susan Bach
Director of Communications
Wisconsin BBB



Be safe out there and keep an eye out for each other...
