Cybercriminals 4 …. John 0… Funny Story

After warning of several cybercrime attempts here, here and here. And even more recently the story of 100k tax returns lost by the IRS , the latest chapter of the cybercrime puzzle arrived in my mailbox over the weekend.

Turbo Tax Asks for their MoneyCybercrime

A nice form letter arrived in my mailbox over the latest weekend stating I owed Turbo Tax money for their software as the “refund” was not enough to cover the cost. Nope, had not used their software!

Gotta hand it to the cybercriminals, if your going to do it, go all in!

Before I even explained to the representative at Turbo Tax why I was calling, the nice lady on the other end of the line said “This was a fraud right?”  “Ya,  How did you know?” According to her this was a very common problem lately.

Keep your guards up!

Actually a funny story if you think about it .. Fraudulent filing, using fraud to get the software to do the fraud … Wow .. certainly creative!

Have a Good Day!
