The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is warning consumers to beware of a scam involving emails sent from fake entities that are using the Better Business Bureau’s logo. Consumers have been telling the attorney general they’ve gotten deceptive emails with the BBB logo and the subject line of “Complaint from your customers.” A link or attachment often contains malicious malware, a computer virus that could harm your computer or steal information.

If you get this kind of email, there are several ways to determine it may be illegitimate. Look for grammatical errors or typos that may indicate the email originated overseas. Look for the location the email came from, as BBB complaints are generated from local offices and not from national headquarters. Refrain from forwarding or responding to the email, and go to to contact your local office and get more information.
