Having filed a BBB report on Pool.com recently, I’m naturally expecting communication on the matter from the Better Business Bureau.
The amount of spoofed emails, pertaining to be from BBB, increased as my guard levels went down.
In the past day or so, I received five phishing emails, supposedly from the Better Business Bureau; all with loose language that’d lead someone to click on the links, expecting to read something about the case they are dealing with.
So remember: the time that you are most vulnerable to phishing emails, is when you’re actually expecting something to arrive! Treat every email as a potential threat and never log in to accounts of services from an email link.
Incidentally, if you’re wondering what might be a solution to the Pool.com situation, Kostantinos over at Online Domain has an interesting suggestion.
