Type of a scam Phishing

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.

Type of a scam Phishing

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.

See the attached email. Scammer is using the BBB name for phishing. We did not open the attachment in the email so are not certain the extent of the scam.

I've received two emails from John L Hook at the above email address. The email says that the "BBB has got an abuse, claiming that your company is violating the Fair Labor Standards Act." That is highly improbable since I am my business and I don't employ anybody. There's a link to download a document. I don't download anything from anyone I don't know. Here's the full text of the email...

My first question is, "Why doesn't MR. Hook have a bbb.org email address?" Anyway, I'm left with two questions. 1. Has anyone lodged an employment complaint against Fluid Drive Media? and 2. is there anything I need to do, beyond notifying you, at this time?

Type of a scam Phishing

I work at the Antioch Community Counseling and Psychology Clinic, and I just received a call from someone saying they were from the BBB. They asked if I knew when our clinic was moving (we are moving, not sure how they knew, though). I told her I didn't know, and she kept haranguing me. I asked for her name and phone number, and she said she couldn't give it to me because it was a computer-generated call. I asked her to email me information regarding her question, and she wouldn't do so until I told her when we were moving (which I never did tell her). Then I said I was going to call the BBB, and she hung up.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

The caller used a unknown number but gave me a contact number to contact him 786-480-2434 name was Mark Anthony calling from New York claiming he was from the ScamPulse.com. He stated that i made a illegal purchaser of windows 8 from a hacker business ( Which I didn't). Mark (bbb) threaten me will a arrest and jail time if I didn't comply with his request to get into my computer Ip address and check out whats going on using his technician. Pretty scary call which thru red flags, I suspected this was a hacker and said good by, and proceeded to call the real ScamPulse.com and make sure this was real or not.The real ScamPulse.com told me to fill out this complaint to help others who might have gotten a call from these loser.

Someone called me claiming to be from the BBB.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

Received call on my answering machine stating "this is Judy Mcquire from the BBB and they were in town to issue a certified check that I had won. Please call 925-273-9680 so they could get with me to give me my check.

So I called to see what I would get and first sign was a guy answered hello. I asked if this was the BBB and if Judy worked there. He immediately changed his tone and said yes, let me transfer you.

She answered and sounded hurried. I asked what this was about and she asked my name so she could see what I had won. Since they already had that, I did and she said I had won 2.5 million. I asked how did I win that and she said it was a number of companies together that selected wins each quarter based on my paying my utility bills, etc. on time.

She stated I should have gotten a mailing explaining this winning and what I needed to do to claim it. She stated a number of times that she would prove it is real and they have a check for me. However, since I had received no mailing, she would call tomorrow as she was leaving work. Then she would explain it all, since I didn't get that information ahead of the call. It was important to get this set up as they only had till the end of next week to deliver the winnings.

So doing my due diligence, I got on the web and saw a number of the same type of scams and also checked your website to see if I was missing something. I never thought the BBB would be in the lottery business. Had she mentioned having to send money, I would have know immediately. No info was given, no money sent. Just want you to be aware that now they are posing as you also. I will not be answering that call tomorrow.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

An elderly family member was scammed last Friday. I was with her yesterday trying to safeguard everything. Later I received a phone call from a man saying he was from BBB and wanted to talk about the scam last Friday. I could barely hear him (call room) or understand him(middle eastern accent). I want verification that he is your employee before I will discuss anything further with him.
