We are aware that emails purporting to be from “From: Dun & BradStreet” with a return email address of firstname.lastname@example.org and containing the Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp logo below the subject line have been received by a number of our customers and contacts. We are currently investigating this matter.
The email content alleges a complaint has been made against the recipient and requires action be taken to address the matter. Please be aware, neither D&B nor DBCC issued or authorized this email. This incident is external to D&B. Our name and logo are being used illegitimately.
- There is no security breach and none of D&B’s data has been compromised
- This appears to be a phishing scam. Such scams encourage an email recipient to click on a link or open a document. Taking such action can trigger blind downloading of malicious software on the user’s computer
- Please delete the email. If you opened it or the attachment that was included, please work with your desktop support team to ensure no malware has been added to your computer.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you or your business. If you have questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Service Team here.
