Help Prevent Consumer Fraud by thinking through these questions:
  • Are you sending money to claim lottery or prize winnings, or on a promise of receiving a large amount of money?

  • Are you sending money to someone you don't know or whose identity you can't verify?

If so, ask BB Americas Customer Service to stop your transfer immediately by calling +1-855-377-2555 (USA); 4007-2260 (Brazil – major cities); 0800 600 4151 (Brazil – other cities) or +1-305-350-1100 (other countries).
