Occasionally, you may receive emails that look like they are from Intuit but are actually from someone else.
When someone sends you an email that pretends to be from a business (like Intuit) or an individual that you know and the email asks you to download something or click a link and enter personal information, this is called a phishing.
What "phishing" means on the Internet
