CLEVELAND - The Better Business Bureau of Cleveland is warning you about an email that links you to a scam website. The email appears to come from Microsoft Outlook on behalf of an anonymous caller. Inside, there is an attachment that appears to be an audio file, but the BBB said it's really a link that takes you to a malicious website.
These websites are dangerous because they often download malware on your computer that will later steal sensitive personal information on your computer.
The BBB said the email is made to look more legitimate because it contains an Email ID that appears to come from your internal company email. If you work at a company called ABC, the email would have an ID labeled "voice.mail@ABC.com."
While this is how the scam is working now, they have a tendency to change. If you get an email from someone you don't know, don't open it.
