There’s a phishing or virus scam out there that is using Dun & Bradstreet’s domain. At first glance it appears authentic, right down to the logo and the privacy statement. But there are some red flags such as 1) why are they ‘forwarding’ instead of creating a new email, 2) why is the attachment zipped and 3) why is the message from ‘alert’ instead of a real person.
Having received such an email today, I went out to the Dun and Bradstreet site and sure enough it is a scam. Check out this link before opening any email from Dun and Bradstreet: http://blog.dandb.com/2013/02/19/customer-complaint-email-dnb/. And, remember, never, ever, trust anything that seems suspicious! Don’t get caught by the ‘phishers’!
