Victory State Bank: Beware E-Mail Scam
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Victory State Bank is calling attention to a recent new alert from the FBI.
The FBI is warning of bogus e-mails claiming to be from the Better Business Bureau. The fraudulent e-mails are notifying companies of supposed customer grievances.
This scam is among five featured in the latest report from the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The IC3 is a partnership between the FBI and the National White-Collar Crime Center and gives victims of cybercrime a convenient reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations.
The e-mail recipient is asked to review the attached “complaint,” which actually contains a virus. One victim business lost nearly $100,000 when fraudsters electronically stole money from the company’s bank account after the virus enabled them to capture passwords and other important banking information.
