QuickBooks Update: Urgent (Legit or not?)


It is so confusing to know what is legit and what is not.  Recently many of my customers have asked if this email is real or not.

I have confirmed with my CSM that it is indeed a SPOOF.  Do not click on the link and tell anyone you know that uses QuickBooks not to do so either.

If you are ever unsure, err on the side of caution and send us an email before you click on anything!!

Stay safe in cyberland!!!
