Tax Season Prompts Phishing Expeditions

As the April 16 tax filing deadline approaches, there has been an uptick in phishing scams targeting consumers along with HR managers. This corporate angle features emails supposedly from company executives soliciting employee W2s along with other sensitive payroll information.

Please be mindful of this aggressive campaign and refer to these IRS tips as a potential resource. Any such email requests should be considered suspicious and followed-up with an email or phone call to verify the sender’s identity.

Feel free to contact our Technology claims manager Dana Lenahan or your local OneBeacon underwriter if you have any questions on this matter.
