Be Aware of Phishing Telephone Scam
On Sept. 27, the FICPA became aware of fraudulent phone calls to members, offering a free renewal subscription to Florida CPA Today. These phone calls were not from the FICPA. Florida CPA Today is available only to FICPA members as a membership benefit. Neither paid nor free subscriptions are available, and separate renewal is not required. The calls were a typical telephone “phishing” scam. The source of the calls has not been determined, and the FICPA is advising anyone receiving such phone calls not to divulge any personal information to the caller.
If you would like information about Florida CPA Today, contact FICPA Editor Suellen Wilkins at (800) 342-3197 (in Florida); (850) 224-2727, Ext. 383; or email@example.com.
