Buying large merchandise at a store is never a pleasant experience, especially for those who don't have a vehicle with plenty of cargo space.
The scam email comes with the subject line, "Access Locked." It tells recipients that access to their tax prep software accounts has been "suspended due to errors in your security details." The scam email asks the tax professional to address the issue by using an "unlock" link provided in the email.
However, the link will take the tax professional to a fake web page, where they are asked to enter their user name and password. Instead of unlocking accounts, the tax professionals actually are inadvertently providing their information to cybercriminals who use the stolen credentials to access the preparers' accounts and to steal client information.
The Security Summit partners remind tax professionals to never open a link or an attachment from a suspicious email. These scams can increase during the tax season.
For tax professionals who receive emails purportedly from their tax software providers suggesting their accounts have been suspended, they should send those scam emails to their tax software provider. For Windows users, please this process to help the investigation of these scam emails:
These days, many email users have more than one Gmail account. This can make things a bit tricky when users try to take advantage of Google's productivity and document sharing features, such as Google Drive and Google Calendar. Shift is a desktop application that enables users to quickly and easily switch between Gmail accounts. For example, users can check the Google Calendar on their personal Gmail account while using Google Docs on their professional email account. Shift also provides users with desktop notifications so they can stay up-to-date about new messages, events, or shared materials on both of their accounts. Available for Mac, Windows, and Linux computers, Shift offers a free Basic account for users to toggle between two Gmail/Inbox/Outlook accounts. Users interested in simultaneously using three or more email accounts have the option of purchasing Shift Pro.

Open Settings > Phone >Announce Calls. Here, you get to choose whenthe phone announces the caller's name when it rings: Always, Never, Headphones Only, or Headphones & Car.
The point of Headphones is privacy -- it means, "Don't announce the caller's name at times when anyone nearby can hear; announce it only when I'm listening in private."
And the point of "Headphones & Car" is a safety thing. When you're driving, you don't want to take your eyes off the road to see who's calling.
For years, polls have shown widespread ignorance of how government works, with courts and the Constitution faring especially poorly in the public consciousness. But federal courts throughout the Second Circuit, which includes New York, Connecticut and Vermont, have launched an ambitious program to change that.
