The Tennessee Department of Commerce reminds consumers that scammers continue trying to trick consumers and businesses into providing information that leads to identity theft, drains bank accounts, and ruins credit reports. In fact, several Better Business Bureau’s recently reported scammers are once again weaving BBB’s trusted name into their ploys because they know the public sees BBB as a trusted entity.According to BBB, one woman said she received a call from “Chris Gabriel” who identified himself as a representative of the Better Business Bureau. To sound official, the caller gave her an ID number and said the call was about her Citibank card.
