BBB Assistance Re Case Spam Email Better Business Bureau

I received three similar versions of the same spam email that claims to be from the BBB or Better Business Bureau. I have posted the three emails below.

Also as a future tip, if you ever receive an email that you want to trace the origin and find out exactly who it belongs to use EmailTracer.

The email wants you to click on a link to reply to a “complaint”. The link is directed to an index file on the IP 38.106.32.183. Huge red flag right there as it is not even a link to the proper BBB domain name (bbb.org).

The IP address belongs to a hosting company. Since the link doesn’t resolve anymore, it looks as if the hosting company closed down the account.

I suggest you don’t ever click on links contained in emails, without first hovering over the link and verifying that it is directing you to the correct domain name.

The grammar mistakes in these emails are a dead give-away. Plus if you search for each of the “employees” names, none actually work for the BBB.
