Rockford, IL – Jan. 4, 2018 –
Phishing Scams top the list of 2017 reports to Chicago and Northern Illinois Better Business Bureau Scam Tracker, knocking out the Tax Collection scam which has topped the list both locally and nationally for the past few years.
Phishing scams have become the doorway for many cyber criminals to launch ransomware and malware attacks on businesses and consumers, and often leads to massive losses in money and valuable data. The BBB advises: never click on links or open attachments from unsolicited emails, and never provide personal information without first verifying the source.
