The Better Business Bureau (BBB) in the US is warning consumers about a new scam campaign using fake voicemail notification emails.
The BBB alert notes:
You receive an unsolicited email that says you have a new voicemail from your Office 365 account or another workplace software. The email seems legitimate. It is complete with the official software logo and text claiming that the message comes from a “trusted source.”
Some versions may include a transcript of part of the supposed voicemail in an effort to trick you into clicking a link.
However, the link does not open a voicemail message. Instead, clicking the link can download malware to your computer.
The BBB notes that links in other versions may open a phishing website that tries to trick you into submitting personal information such as account passwords.
If you receive one of these voicemail notification emails, do not click on any links that it contains.
