Phishing Campaign: “Setup your advanced security profile. "// "ADP support team"

July 30, 2019

ADP has received reports regarding fraudulent emails being sent to ADP clients from email addresses that have the following format:

  • Willie Frank(ES) <Willie.frank<AT>tnoculoplastics.com>
  • Payroll Security <sec.workforcenow<AT>poolstorexpress.com>
  • ADP Workforcenow <adpworkforcenow<AT>poolstorexpress.com>

The subject lines are the following: "Setup your advanced security profile" or "ADP support team". These emails instruct the recipient to click on a link in order to activate SMS service on their Workforcenow account for security alerts. The link redirects the user to a phishing ADP login page.

These emails do not originate from ADP and our analysis has revealed that they may contain malicious content. We’re working with our fraud prevention team and anti-phishing vendor to address this incident.
