New Scam Alert: Protect Your Information Online

A dangerous scam is now spreading from businesses to other types of employers. In the scam, a worker in the human resources or payroll department receives an email from the CEO or a top executive. The message requests W-2s or other private information about the organizationā€™s employees. But it is a phishing email, a convincing-looking fake, and the confidential information is delivered into the hands of crooks. The IRS has just issued a warning to all employers about this scam.
