Receiving an email with the subject of a SBS “profile grade” is a marketing campaign from a company soliciting their services. If you received an email stating that your Dynamic Small Business Search or Small Business Administration (“DSBS” OR “SBA”) profile has a “grade”, follow these suggested steps:

    • Read the fine print at the bottom of the email before anything else
    • Be cautious clicking on links or downloading any attachments
    • Check the email address of the sender. Any email from the Federal Government ends with a “.gov” or “.mil, if not, then it is most likely a creative marketing email from a private organization offering services
    • Be highly cautious taking any immediate actions from incoming calls or emails regarding any of these topics
    • If you are unsure, feel free to reach out to USBRI for advice or assistance

A number of these particular emails seem to speak of a an entity’s SBS “profile” grade in order to get a response from the email receiver. Your “SBS or DSBS profile” does NOT have a grade.
