AICPA warns about “phishing” scam using their logo

Posted by Tom Henell on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 @ 05:07 PM

Many accounting firms have been receiving emails that reference their possible involvement in unlawful income tax activity and include the AICPA logo.  The AICPA has confirmed these emails are not from their office.  They further confirmed that after an extensive check, they are confident their systems have not been compromised.

These emails may be received by CPA’s, non-CPA’s, and members of the general public.

If you receive one of these emails do not open the attachments as they may contain viruses.  For more information, visit the AICPA website
