QuickBooks Phishing Emails

Filed in Court, Illegal, Intuit QuickBooks by on April 20, 2010

Please do not waste your time and money with QuickBooks Phishing Emails. These QuickBooks Phishing Emails may appear to come from Intuit. They are often more realistic than the silly one below. Send suspicious QuickBooks Phishing Emails to SPOOF@Intuit.com.

When Brad Smith found he would soon be the next Intuit CEO, he called to ask that I use John Yarno as my primary Intuit point of contact. John rather quickly wrote:


Yes, it is a phishing email, please do nothing with it. If you run into something like this again, please feel free to forward the email in question to SPOOF@Intuit.com.

Thanks for the heads up Mike, have a great day.
