BBB – Better Business Bureau shut down a fraudulent website this week after the site sent a phishing email that looked like it was from the FBI with a document stored in Dropbox, but was really malware. BBB is alerting users of file sharing sites to be cautious when accepting files, even if the email appears to be from someone they know. The Council of Better Business Bureaus contracts with Corporate Services Company (CSC) for take-down services when scam websites mimic BBB, use its intellectual property, or attempt to enter its systems. CBBB has instigated take downs of nearly 200 fraudulent websites since November 2011 when the BBB name and logo was first used in a phishing scam.
