With tax season upon us, we’re seeing phishing schemes targeting company W-2 information. Messages, such as those below, will come to HR or finance personnel from criminals impersonating a senior executive such as the CEO:
• Kindly send me the individual 2015 W-2 (PDF) and earnings summary for all W-2 of our company staff for a quick review.
Companies as large as Seagate have fallen prey to this scam. As a result, we believe it is prudent to alert all members of your staff with access to this information about this new phishing attack.
