A malicious email is claiming to be from BBB, but can download software to break into financial accounts and steal money, warns Daniel Novick of CW33-TV, Dallas - Fort Worth.
Enough people must be clicking on the links to make it worthwhile for the scammers to continue to send the malware, says Jeannette Kopko, spokesperson for the Better Business Bureau serving Dallas and Northeast Texas. Don't click on the links, delete the email completely, and run a complete virus scan from a reputable company.
Poor spelling and grammar are tip-offs to phishing emails. Another way to guard against emails that claim to be from BBB: hover over the link, and if it's not from the bbb.org domain, it's dangerous.
