Tips to Avoid Apple and Other Email Phishing

Here are some things to remember to help you avoid email scams:

- Emails from Apple and other legitimate companies will not ask you to provide information like your social security number, full credit card number, your mother's maiden name or the 3 digit ccv code on the back of your credit card.  

- Remember to be extra suspicious of emails asking you to update your account or payment information - and for Apple users only do so in the Settings directly on your phone or device, or in iTunes.  

(You can also always update your Apple ID password in Settings or at appleid.apple.com.)

Look at the email sender , many times scammers create a fraudulent account that is similar but not actually the email address you receive requests or account updates from.

- If you receive a suspicious email see if you can forward to an appropriate party, forward scam emails posing as Apple to reportphishing@apple.com

- If you think you may have provided your password, credit card or other personal information to an illegitimate party, be sure to change your apple or other password

Intuit Offers Opportunities for 
Professionals Returning to the Workforce


Often times companies will not hire individuals who take time off work to raise children or other family members, tending to view such candidates as behind compared to other candidates.   

That is why Intuit started a program for women and other professionals who exit the workforce to take care of children or other family members.  

It's a continuation of a successful program called Intuit Again that launched in 2015 in India.   75% of those who participated in the internship in India went on to become full time employees! 

Last month 8 women were the first to kick off the version offered at Intuit's Mountain View, CA headquarters that lasts 4 months. (good luck!!)

Here's where you can learn more about the program and apply:  http://intuitagain.com/career.php

We hope everyone had a very Happy Easter!!
