Similar than this but more scary.

I got a message similar to the one in this article just this morning, it had an added comment concerning the EVM Chip. However, where this one is scary is that the email address it came from was " " The links in the email, however, do not take you to an intuit site. I forwarded this one to intuit and received confirmation that it was indeed a phishing attempt.

Please do not just take the email address as confirmation it is real. Go to the webpage yourself and just don't follow links.

Useful article around this topic published by Andi from ProAdvisor Team!!

Very helpful article Murph!! Also, here's a link to another helpful article that Andi Ancheta from our ProAdvisor team have published, which I believe will be super helpful to our readers-
Here's a quick summary of some tips that users can do to protect themselves from a phishing attack:

1. If you suspect you have received a phishing email using Intuit as the vehicle for the phish, please visit Intuit posts all known phishes using the Intuit Brand. If you find a similar email posted you can delete the email you received; however if you do not find a similar email, please forward it immediately to We will look into each reported instance.
2. Make sure you subscribe to an Antivirus software and keep it up to date.
3. Make sure you have updated your web browser to one that includes anti-phishing security features.
4. Make sure that you stay up to date on the latest releases and patches for your operating systems and critical programs. These releases are frequently security-related.
5. Do not respond to emails asking for account, password, banking or credit card information.
6. Do not open up an attachment that claims to be a software update.
7. Make sure you have secured your computer and data files with passwords.

And once you forward it to, don't forget to mark it as Spam so you don't get anymore from that particular email address.

Forward these e-mails to to let them know about them. That was the advice I received from the QB ProAdvisor Accountant Support.

Check spelling

If you look at the sender field, you'll see that they've spelled QuickBooks wrong as well.

I received this one

I received this email but knew it to be a scam because of the typos. Were instead of we're and quickbooks instead of QuickBooks.

I get some every day. They're rampant! And tons of emails asking for help fixing payroll and the QB file, all in broken English.
