SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Better Business Bureau issued a new warning on Thursday regarding email scams that could be targeting your job.

Is that email really from your boss?

Scammers pretending to be your "boss" have bilked more $3 Billion from American businesses using this scheme.

Lori Wilson from the Golden Gate Better Business Bureau spoke to 7 On Your Side's Michael Finney on how businesses have been targeted, and how it can protect its business and you---the employee.

Wilson also points out if a business has been targeted, it can still retrieve money stolen from a scammer.
