American Chamber of Commerce Scam

The Better Business Bureau is warning about a scam when a business receives a telephone purportedly from the American Chamber of Commerce. Business owners and employees may confuse that name with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

There is no American Chamber of Commerce that operates in the United States although organizations with that name operate in foreign countries such as Australia and Ireland. The caller supposedly representing the American Chamber of Commerce explains in the call that they are updating the information about the company being called in the Chamber’s latest directory and they just need to confirm some basic company information such as company officers, phone numbers and other, what would appear to be, innocuous information. But it isn’t.

Once this information has been gathered the scammers use this information for more targeted spear phishing attacks against the company in a variety of scams including phony invoices and scams in which company employees are lured into clicking on malware infected links in emails that appear to be quite legitimate due to the large amounts of accurate and relevant information contained in the e-mail.
