Recognizing Phishing Attempts:
To Avoid Compromising Your Financial Data Do the Following:
• Be wary of emails asking for personal info. Intuit won’t ask for this via email.
• Authentic Intuit emails will come from addresses ending in “@intuit.com”.
• Any link within a genuine Intuit email will direct to an “intuit.com” address.
Identifying Legitimate Intuit Websites:
• All official Intuit sites end with “*intuit.com”. This includes sites like “quickbooks.intuit.com”.
• Be cautious of any unfamiliar formats or variations of the Intuit domain.
Handling Suspicious Emails:
• Be alert! Scammers will often pretend to be Intuit and may instruct actions like logging in or downloading ‘tools’.
• If you encounter such an email, DO NOT open or click any links.
• Head over to the Intuit Online Security Center to learn more and report suspicious emails.
• Forward the suspicious email to your ProAdvisor Accountant without taking any other action.
Avoiding Customer Support Scams:
• Beware of anyone claiming there’s an issue with your computer. Remember, Intuit won’t approach you to fix computer problems.
• Such scams aim to either extract money from you or steal your files.
Security is Our Collective Responsibility:
