New Intuit Phishing Emails

It might be worth warning your clients of a phishing spam going around with tax season approaching.  I got a dozen of them this morning that sneaked past all my spam filters. These are supposedly from Intuit and here is the gist of it (without the link):

Dear Sir/Madam,

In our continuing effort to assure that precise information is being maintained on our systems, and to be able to grant you better quality of service; INTUIT INC. has taken part in the Internal Revenue Service [IRS] Name and TIN Matching Program.

  For some reason your name and/or Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number, that is indicated on your account does not correspond to the data on file with the Social Security Administration.

 In order to enable INTUIT INC. to update your account, please enter the secure section.

 Regards,

INTUIT INC.

Corporate Headquarters
2632 Marine Way
Mountain View, CA 94043

 The words, “enter the secure section” has a link (disabled on my example) that is obviously not related to Intuit so make sure your clients understand not to click that link.

Normally I just delete those but since so many of them slipped through my spam/phishing system, I figure others might have similar results. It is a good opportunity to have a discussion with your clients about not clicking on any links that seem to be trying to get confidential information. Now I need to add that to my filters.
