Businesses Targeted with Email Purportedly form the Better Business Bureau - IC3

Note: This is a repost of an Alert from the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) - March 27, 2012
Please see the following link: http://www.ic3.gov/media/2012/120327.aspx for the original alert.

Businesses Targeted With E-mail Purportedly from the Better Business Bureau (BBB)


The IC3 has received several complaints from businesses regarding an e-mail, purportedly from the BBB, which states the BBB has received a complaint from a customer regarding their business. The recipient is asked to review the complaint attached to the e-mail and respond to the BBB. The file attached to the e-mail contains a virus.

In one complaint received by the IC3, a business claimed their computer was infected with a virus after opening the attachment in the e-mail they received. As a result, the business lost nearly $100,000 when fraudsters successfully wired money from the company's bank account after the virus enabled them to capture passwords and other important banking information.

The BBB posted the following alert on December 7, 2011.
