Fraudulent Emails Appearing to Come from ADP with Subject Line: Your ADP account will be suspended soon

Most Recently Reported: April 20, 2016
Date Initially Reported: June 03, 2015

Issue Overview
There have been reports regarding fraudulent emails that appear to be sent from ADP which may have various subject lines including “Your ADP account will be suspended soon.” These emails include a link or a file attachment and instruct the recipient to open it. The link leads to a phishing page entitled “ADP Account Update” which asks the recipient to enter their User ID, password, Email ID and email password. Once the above details have been submitted, the user is redirected to the ADP website to make him/her believe that their information is not submitted to spammers.

These emails do not originate from ADP and our analysis has revealed that they may contain an attachment that may be malicious. ADP is addressing this issue diligently with our fraud prevention team and security vendors to identify and contain the source of these emails and will provide updated information as it becomes available.

Message Subject Lines (See attached PDF for more detail):
Your ADP account will be expired soon
New message from ADP Payroll
Your ADP account will expire soon!
Your ADP account access will soon be suspended!
Your ADP Payroll access will expire soon
Your ADP will be suspended soon
Confirm your information!
