This email will tell you that you may qualify for a $5,775 check for degree funding. It will have a couple links to click, all that will inevitably take you to an infected website where they will steal your information or install malware.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emails from The Better Business Bureau

phish email
These emails are asking people to click on an SBQ form to answer questions. This link, however, goes to a site which delivers malware to the user’s computer, and should NOT be clicked on. If the email’s “from” address of BBB, contains .bbbl.org it is not a valid BBB.
