Phishing Alert

  
     
September 11, 2017

The BBB name and logo are being fraudulently used by criminals in an on-going phishing scam affecting businesses all across North America. The emails look very much like notice of a complaint from BBB, but contain links to malware that can infect your computer, or steal your passwords as a start. Please be assured BBB is working with law enforcement as well as a private deactivation firm to shut down as many criminal websites as possible. To date, we have shut down well over 100 sites. Emails like this have been reported across Atlantic Canada.
