Better Business Bureau Phishing Scam Spam

I received a phishing scam email purporting to be from The Better Business Bureau, (BBB), which is actually from a scam bastard using the domain name cemma-usc.net.

The email details are:

If you receive a similar email from the Better Business Bureau telling you that a Case has been brought against you. delete it from your machine straight away. Don’t click on the link, just delete the email. The link on this BBB phishing scam email, may not be phishing for your personal details, you could be downloading malware into your machine - either way, don’t risk it. Hit shift and delete and take it out of your machine completely.

If you receive a phishing/malware email from the Better Business Bureau, we’d appreciate it if you could drop us a quick comment to let us know if anything on your BBB case email is different from the one above. Thanks.

- I did actually follow the link, before posting this, and it took me to the seach engine Bing’s home page I like the look of your broducts Andrew, but is the only way someone can get an indication of price is to ask for a quote? I would think you lose a lot of custom because of that? Your web developer should easily be able to build an online quoting system for you. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to comment. BM

Just got this a few minutes ago. Cute, as I have nothing really to do with the running of my company. I really like the emphasis.

I am really glad I established a fear of .exe files a few years ago. Interesting that this was sent to me as a .exe file inside of a .zip. I guess they know e-mail servers often skim off .exe files.
