TurboTax is a very popular online tax preparation site, and at the moment the bad guys have massive campaigns going that look like they come from TurboTax. The subject is about "important privacy changes". They want people to click on the link to "opt out" of having their personal information shared, but that's an obvious social engineering trick.

  • Always have your Internet Security software updated, but do not rely on it.
  • Always keep all of your software up to date with the latest patches, computer and phone.
  • Never click on links in emails or text messages unless you are sure it's legit. For instance, if you want to go to TurboTax, visit their website directly by typing their address in your browser.
  • Think Before You Click! Always take a second to ask yourself if this might be a scam."
