For the past few days I have been receiving this e-mail that looked shady. Essentially, it seems like there is a company that is targeting people who use Intuit products where they then attempt to get people’s user data. This is the e-mail I got:

As it turns out all of the links eventually go to a site called http://quantummantenimiento.com and not the Intuit site. Basically, stay away or just delete the e-mail as if you run a business giving out account passwords and user ids that have access to all your financial data won’t be too pleasant.
