According to the Better Business Bureau, all business users of the popular accounting software should be on the lookout for a new phishing email scam. Scammers have crafted an authentic-looking email, falsely claiming to be from Quickbooks maker Intuit.
Like a lot of Intuit scams, this phishing email contains a link that scammers are hoping you will click on, to infect your computer and/or business network with a virus that can steal passwords and sensitive business information. The email may include:
– A subject line that reads “QuickBooks Support: Change Request”
– The Intuit and/or Quickbooks logo
– A false claim that someone has requested to change the name of your business on your Quickbooks account
– A hyperlink to click on to “cancel the request”
It just makes sense to alert all your team members about this latest Intuit scam. And make it an office policy NOT to click on any links in any suspicious-looking emails. For more information about this Quickbooks users scam, check out the Accounting Today website.
