Payroll Fraud Email Scheme

Scammers are impersonating an HR and payroll services company informing employees of a change to payroll policy due to COVID-19. In an attempt to steal credentials, scammers send a convincing email with a sense of urgency to complete information in order to not cause interruption to payroll processing. Included is a link to a fake HR and payroll services website with a landing page replicating the company’s payroll landing page. Falling victim to this attack results in compromised sensitive employee information.
