We’ve had some clients get an email that looks like the one below. This is a spam email — if you get it, just delete it and do not click on the link. Here is a page from Intuit (the REAL Intuit) about this email. If Intuit wants information from you, then they’ll ask you to log in to your account or go through QuickBooks to provide the information.
Pretty much, if you get an email that asks for personal information, or gives you a link to click where you’re supposed to enter in information like your Social Security number — don’t do it. Especially if they tell you that the world will end in 30 days if you don’t do it.
Here’s the fake email:

We have found out, that your name and/or Employer Identification Number, that we have on your account is different from the information provided by the SSA.
