ELKHART, Ind. – Seemingly a growing trend, Patrick Industries has joined the group of companies scammed by an email phishing attack.
In phishing attacks, scammers are targeting key company personnel by sending them emails from a forged address – making the recipient believe the email is from a trusted user.
In this case, an attacker, disguised as the company's CEO, convinced an unnamed employee to hand over thousands of employee W2s.
ABC57 News reported that police are asking affected employees to monitor their credit, look for new things they have not agreed to, and contact local law enforcement if unusual activity is observed.
Earlier this month, North-Carolina based Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furniture faced a nearly identical attack, with over 1,100 employee W2s being exposed. Hackers have already begun using the W2s to file fraudulent returns.
Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furniture was the victim of an online hack, which exposed the tax information of over a thousand of the company’s employees.
Outside the wood industry, other companies have been attacked, including Indiana’s Scotty’s Brewhouse and Monarch Beverage.
The IRS reports this is one of the most dangerous email phishing scams seen in a long time. Patrick Industries is offering a year of free credit monitoring to affected employees.
Michael Weinig AG announced an investment of 5 million euros ($5.29 million) in Holz-Her’s production plant in Voitsberg, Austria.
NexTech Machinery in Cornelius, N.C., introduced its new R400 moving gantry CNC router with auto loading and unloading.
