Security Update: Fraudulent Emails
This is a sample of the fraudulent message:
While the message appears to have come from a legitimate email address, it is a case of "spoofing," wherein a hacker creates the email to appear valid even though it is configured to work maliciously behind the scenes. The fraudulent email could contain an attachment with potential malware or point to a malicious destination.
If you receive this email:
- Delete it without opening any of the attachments. Please share these instructions with everyone in your office.
- If you already opened an attachment, please call your Paychex payroll contact as soon as possible. As a safety measure, do not log in to your Paychex Online account or any other password-protected account from your computer.
