Scammers pose as BBB

February 14, 2007

Albany --  The Better Business Bureau is warning about Internet attacks on Georgia businesses using the BBB's name to attract victims.  

The BBB said a firm in Kennesaw had its computer system hacked February 13th, and it generated thousands of counterfeit messages saying it is a complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau.

The scam e-mail has a false hyperlink, OPERATIONS at BBB.ORG, citing DOCUMENTS FOR CASE #.

The Better Business Bureau says computers that open that link have their computer "phished"  and a potential virus downloaded. The BBB warns businesses to beware Internet messages claiming to be from them, relating to complaints.
