CHAMBER MEMBER ADVERTISEMENTS
 
IT Security Tip: Lie, Lie, Lie....
 
Social engineering is big business. What is it? Figuring out who you are and then using that information to make money off of it.
People list password challenge and identity verification publicly on their Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages and feeds without giving it a second thought. Maiden name? Check. Favorite pet? Check. High school? Check. Town they grew up in? Check. Favorite or first car? Check. Throwback Thursday is a social engineer’s dream! They love this stuff.
Combat this by A) not posting that information online anywhere or B) always giving false password and identity challenge and verification information to the sites and services that require it. Keep the answer file offline. Remember, if it’s a handwritten list, you can still take a photo of it.

BBB January 2022 Hot Topics.
  1.  As tax season approaches, BBB warns of IRS copycat websites. One local consumer has already encountered one and reported it to BBB. Copycat websites often charge you for a service that is typically free, and they often “phish” for your personal and financial information. Visit the IRS’s actual website (IRS.gov) for all tax-related forms, questions, etc.
  2. A local consumer reported to BBB that her son and daughter had fallen victim to an Instagram “brand ambassador” scam. They were offered discount codes on products; however, the items were never received. Be wary of anyone who comments on your Instagram posts with “DM to collab” (or similar messaging), offers you an ambassadorship role right away, and/or asks you to buy a product. These are red flags for scams! 
  3. A local consumer reported to BBB that he was the victim of an online romance scam, and the scammers were threatening to release compromising images to his family and friends. BBB warns against sending any intimate photos or videos to potential romantic partners you’ve just met. You could become the victim of attempted blackmail. 
  4. BBB continues to receive reports of reshipping scams involving Gentleman’s Courier Service. It has been reported to BBB by the former owner of Gentleman’s Courier Service that someone is using the now-closed company’s name and likeness to pose as a legitimate business. BBB reminds consumers that any “job opportunity” that involves receiving other people’s packages at your personal residence is likely a reshipping scam. 
  5. BBB received a report from a local consumer regarding an employment scam. Upon completing an “application” through the Telegram app and Facebook messenger, the consumer received a check to be used for equipment. BBB warns of any job offers that include sending you a check to pay for equipment. These are typically scams that leave the victim on the hook for the bad check.
  6. BBB received a report from a local consumer regarding a horse breeder scam. The victim purchased a horse from a supposed breeder, but the animal was never delivered, and the scammer attempted to demand more money. When purchasing or adopting any pet, it’s important to see the animal in person first, check the breeder’s references, and reverse Google search any photos of the animal sent by the breeder. 
  7. A local consumer received a call allegedly from LG&E, stating their service would be shut off in 30 minutes if they did not pay a past due bill immediately. LG&E will never call you and demand payment over the phone. When in doubt, contact LG&E directly.
  8. One local consumer reported to BBB that he’d received a Facebook message from a friend inviting him to apply for a government grant. He became suspicious when the grant website asked for money upfront before approving the grant, and later learned his friend’s Facebook account had been hacked. BBB warns against any grants, scholarships, or sweepstakes that demand payment upfront before delivering the promised monetary reward.
  9. BBB continues to receive reports of scam Amazon phone calls. As a reminder, Amazon will not call you to question a purchase; this phishing scam is an attempt to gain access to your Amazon account and/or financial information.
  10. BBB warns of scam coupon offers appearing on social media platforms. Don’t fall for deals that are too good to be true, check the source of the coupon, read the coupon carefully, and don’t trade your personal information for any alleged perks.
