W2 Scam Alert

tim-gouw-68319

Time for the yearly reminder: This is the time of year when all of the fake IRS scams start hitting.  Millions of dollars are stolen every year because someone accidentally sent out W2’s to a scammer.

With all of the data breaches that have happened over the last year, people can reach out with a lot of detail to support their requests, and the value of the information is such that it is worth it to do very well-researched attacks.

PLEASE verify any requests for information with a phone call or something similar. These kinds of breaches are much easier to prevent than they are to clean up after the fact.
