Dun & Bradstreet D & B Targeting Individuals Without Businesses Internet

*UPDATE Employee: User is almost definitely a victim of a phishing scam

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Dun & Bradstreet are reporting false complaints on individuals, such as myself, who do not own or run any type of business & are soliciting responses against said complaints via email. I do not know if this is just a shady attempt to get people to sign up for their services. Either way, it is wrong & should be unlawful as well.

#1 UPDATE Employee

User is almost definitely a victim of a phishing scam

AUTHOR: Dustin Luther - ()

Recently, a spammer has sent out a large number of emails purporting to come from D&B ( that were illegitimate and alleged that a complaint requiring prompt action had been made against the recipient.  These emails contained the Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. logo and contact information.  Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. has no relation to these emails and our name and logo were being used illegitimately.

Because the spammer sent out so many emails, we posted an update on our website that includes ways you can check if the email was legitimate:

D&B also posted a notice on their website:

Also worth noting, there was malware attached to the email that was sent out by the spammer, so if you did open the attachment, then you will want to work with your desktop support team to ensure no malware has been added to your computer.
