A scam that targets payroll and human resource professionals is back. It is a scam where fraudsters send out phony e-mails to company payroll departments asking for a list of employees, W-2 data and more. The e-mails come from false websites and use the information for nefarious purposes, including filing fraudulent tax returns claiming refunds. It has spread beyond the corporate world to schools, hospitals, and the like.
