BBB Warns Of Malicious Imitation E-Mail

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Better Business Bureau is warning residents and business owners of a new e-mail scam using their name and logo.

According to the company, the scam originated just before Thanksgiving and since then has been infecting computers through e-mail attachments and links.

Those who click on the infected attachments introduce malware into their system that is able to access bank numbers, passwords and other information.

Peggy Penders, a representative for the group, says there are ways to protect yourself from being scammed.

“Don’t click on any links and open attachments, is number one,” Penders said. “But, if you’re able to hover over any links that are coming to you, to determine what the adress is, often times it will be revealed. If it’s not from someone you know and trust, don’t click on it.”

Penders also recommends anyone receiving the e-mail run a system scan, in order to protect their computers from the virus.
