HR Scam Alert!

There is a new scam hitting HR professionals, targeting employee tax information. The emails appear to be emails from a company executive, asking HR to send them W2’s or other employee tax information. A second email follows, stating the executive is working from home, and to send the W2’s to their home email address. In reported circumstances, the initial email looked like it came from the actual work address, when in reality they were from remote countries. If you get an email like this, please call the appropriate company contact to verify whether the information has actually been requested, and contact your IT professionals. Always be vigilant when sending employee information via email.
