Thieves and malware misfits are doing even more elaborate work in an attempt to steal your credit card and/or computer information (and potentially hijack your data and identity). As you can see in this 'snapshot' of an email I got just today, it appears to be from Intuit.
In the past most of the From addresses while they showed something Intuit or QuickBooks the actual address showed up as something else, but this one clearly appears to be truly from Intuit QuickBooks. Cybercriminals, like these phishers, send thousands of e-mails like this every day, trying to get access to computers or to personal information. Unfortunately, there are many ways cyber criminals can obtain email addresses.
It's only when you hover your cursor over the 'links' in the email that you see they DO NOT point to anything even remotely related to Intuit or QuickBooks, but rather scam artists out to get as much of your confidential information as possible. These thieves have even gone so far as to duplicate 'disclosure' information (in the small print) to make the email look even closer to the real thing.
If you encounter similar spam/phishing emails you should forward them immediately to Intuit's fraud busters at firstname.lastname@example.org Intuit will acknowledge receipt of your forwarded fraud report and provide some cautionary and preventative recommendations that may warrant your attention, or that of your company's IT security personnel.
Just remember, NEVER click on any links in such emails; if you have questions, concerns or doubts about your Intuit account (or account information), either sign-in normally to your ProAdvisor/Accounttant account using the secure website sign-in to be found at http://quickbooks.intuit.com/accountants/proadvisor/, or via your QBOA access, or contact QuickBooks ProAdvisor/Accountant support at 1-888-333-3451.
