Hello,

Our small, family-business received an email, from someone claiming to be with BBB, which I have copied and pasted here. Please do not follow the link as I believe it to be corrupt.

The email we received is as follows:

Subject: 41657897927:72

From: Ruth K Lanier [[email protected]]

Sent: 7:54 AM

*End of email message*

1. The reason I did not follow the link to view the complaint is that several things look off about this email. The ScamPulse.com operates from a dot org website and people emailing from BBB would probably use a dot org email address. So the email Ruth uses looks unofficial to me and in no relation to BBB [[email protected]]. I also checked our business health on BBB and found that we are such a small company that we do not even have a profile on the BBB website.

2. I also am skeptical of the type of file linked in the email. The link is a bit.ly link which is a notorious link used by scammers to shorten and hide the real URL link. This could be used to mask the scam link so it looks more benign.

3. In her message, Ruth does not discuss the actual complaint details at all. She insists that she is sending an automatic email because someone else has filed a complaint with BBB pertaining to a Fair Labor Standards Act violation. This notion is ridiculous and the fact that we must follow the link to get details is unconvincing.

4. In her "automatic" message, Ruth spells the word "complaint" correctly only the first time the word is used. Three subsequent uses of the word are misspelled as "compliant." If she were truly sending us an automatic, BBB email I think she would have proofread her own message so that each word were spelled properly.

5. If this is indeed an email from the ScamPulse.com, by all means let me know. I feel it is a phishing email from someone posing as the BBB and I hope the BBB warns people about this scam. Thank you for the opportunity to highlight this scam. It came through all my spam filters and landed directly in my inbox, so it may be a scam that people are seeing more of lately because spam filters haven't picked up on it yet. I hope this post helps others faced with the same scam to deduce its fraudulence.

Appears scammer is claiming to be the BBB and attempting to use scare tactics to garner a response from companies. Text is poorly drafted and lacks proper citations for the violations it is claiming.

One employee at our business received an email from Jamie G Blankenship, Abuse Department, BBB. States that we got a complaint filed against our business, violating the Safety and Health Act. Link inside to download the document, and a request to reply within 24 hours.

I detonated the link inside our test environment, it was directed at a bit.ly short form website. Takes me to a fake BBB webpage. I have tracked the email header details to IP: 107.14.73.232, Time Warner Cable internet. Address goes down to an outskirt of Wichita, Kansas.

I submitted an abuse report to TWC and let them know what was going on. Called the real BBB to ensure nothing was actually filed, and was asked to submit scam report.
