[b-greek] Does "If A then B mean if not B then not A" ?

I have seen it stated that it is a logical fallacy when one assumes that a conditional statement is also true in the reverse as in "If A, then B is not equal to if non-A, then non-B) as described by Wallace on page 687. Could one also state that this is also the case for "if not B then not A"? Assume a third class conditional with EAN + subjunctive followed by an apodosis in the future.
