scam alertBetter Business Bureau of Central New England is warning the public of an email scam fraudulently using the BBB name and logo. If you receive a suspicious email, contact your local BBB before taking action. The email also claims the recipient has violated the “Fair Labor Act,” the “Safety and Health Act,” or other similar sounds claim attempting to sound like an official act.

“Scammers use the logo and official language to try to purport legitimacy,” said Nancy B. Cahalen, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau of Central New England. “Recipients should be vigilant, and aware that BBB does not send emails of this nature.” If you receive an email from BBB, or any agency, that seems suspicious, contact your local BBB office before taking action.
