  • Listed below are few questions that you need to ask yourself:
  • Is the sender’s email address recognizable?
  • Are there grammatical or spelling errors in the message that you see?
  • With what you would expect from the sender, is the tone consistent?
  • Are you being asked by the sender asking to urgently select a link in the message?
  • Are you being threatened by the sender that you may lose access to your account?

Make sure that it’s a trusted site like www.quickbooksupport.net before you open a link in an email. Search the site in your browser if it looks suspicious. In a suspicious email, don’t select any links.

If you have a suspicious email in your mail box, forward it to spoof@intuit.com. To keep tracking info, don’t cut or paste content. You should delete the email from your inbox.
