Better Business Bureau Scam 03 Nov 11

The Better Business Bureau is cautioning businesses and consumers about a new scam involving an alleged Better Business Bureau sweepstakes. Victims receive a phone call purporting to be from a Better Business Bureau employee claiming they have won $2.5 million and a Mercedes Benz. This is a scam. The caller then directs the victim to visit the website better-businessbureau.org, which contains misinformation and fraudulent claims. Consumers are urged not to visit this site. The official Better Business Bureau website is www.bbb.org.
