Email Scam at Turner Construction Co. Affects Employees Nationwide
Spear-phishing; Stolen credentials
An unknowing employee sent personal and financial information on workers to a fraudulent email address, according to a notification that a Turner attorney sent on March 7, five days after the incident.
All employees who worked for Turner in 2015 are affected.
Turner currently has 5,600 employees in North America.
An employee mistakenly forwarded the employees' names and Social Security numbers, along with earnings and tax information to a con artist.
Turner says it has provided the compromised data to the Internal Revenue Service, which has taken steps to monitor employees' tax accounts for suspicious activity.
