Tax Data Scammers Strike Again
The firm Moneytree recently joined a growing list of companies targeted by W2 phishing scams this year.
The company alerted employees on March 4th that their tax data had been given to the scammer by accident.
The scammer was able to impersonate a targeted employee at Moneytree by sending an email, asking for information regarding the company’s payroll. This information included employee names, home addresses, birthdates, social security numbers, and W2 information. Regrettably, the fake email was not detected as a scam.
Internet security doesn't involve just anti-virus, firewalls, and Cloud DNS protection. Employee education is imperative. Scammers are phishing for valuable information!
