If you have a QuickBooks Online account or any Intuit.com account, be alert for the newest QuickBooks phishing scam. The M.O. is familiar. You receive an email “confirming” that Intuit (maker of QuickBooks products) has received your request for a Business Name Change for Intuit Services. Make no mistake; this is a scam!

Below is a copy of the body text in this scam email. The links have been deliberately disabled for your protection. If you do receive this email, hover over the link, without clicking. You will see that, instead of going to the actual QuickBooks site, you will be re-directed to a dating website in the Netherlands (.nl). Once on that site, you may be subject to questionable content, asked for personal information, or have malware downloaded onto your computer or smart phone.

Should you receive this email, simply delete it. If you have concerns about your QuickBooks online account, contact Intuit using a trusted resource.
