BBB Tips to Avoid Phishing Scams:
- If something sounds suspicious, confirm it by calling the company directly or checking the company website. Don’t click on links in an unexpected email – type the URL for the company into your browser or do a web search to find the right website.
- Don’t click, download, or open anything that comes from an anonymous sender. This is likely an attempt to gain access to your personal information or install malware on your computer.
- Be cautious of generic emails. Scammers try to cast a wide net by including little or no specific information in their fake emails. Always be wary of unsolicited messages that don't contain your name, last digits of your account number or other personalizing information.
- If you’ve received this text, report it to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/scamtracker. Consider contacting the Internet Crime Complaint Center at IC3.gov or your state Attorney General’s office.
