Better Business Bureau scammers

I see the Better Business Bureau (BBB) scammers are at it again. They last had a big charge at this  phishing email scam was back in December and as I wrote an article about it back then; just check it out and save an old man from having to do fully write it again :)

Needless to say, if you receive an email from the Better Business Bureau, with a subject like similar to: BBB assistance Re: Case # 66441101, from Better Business Bureau [info@bbb.org] and that has a zip file called something along the lines of BBB Report.zip (31KB) and the content along the lines of:

Dear Sirs,

The Better Business Bureau has received the above mentioned complaint from one of your clients in respect of their dealings with you. The details of the consumer’s concern are explained in attached file.

Please give attention to this matter and let us know about your position. We kindly ask you to open the ATTACHED REPORT to respond  this complaint.  We look forward to your prompt response.  

Yours faithfully, 
James Siena Dispute
Counselor Better Business Bureau

DON’T OPEN THE ZIP FILE.

Simply delete the email and move on with your day :)

Just got two of these mails in the last couple of days. Arrived in my junk mail. That is where they are going to stay! I did report them as phishing scam to hotmail! Perhaps if we all report them someone will stop them midstream?
