FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A WINK News Call for Action alert. Keep a careful eye on your work e-mail. The Better Business Bureau is warning about visual voicemail e-mails that are making the rounds.
The Better Business Bureau says they have't seen this before and scammers hope you haven't either. If you haven't, scammers are banking that you'll be curious enough to click on the link. Don't do it!
Here is how it works, you'll see an e-mail in your work inbox. The BBB says it appears to come from Microsoft Outlook. On behalf of "an anonymous caller" who happens to work in your company.
