DODGE COUNTY -- The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office was recently contacted by its own Information Technology Department who made officials aware of an internet phishing scam that attacks computers and phones via email. This phishing scam looks like it comes from Turbo Tax.
The email tries to make you click on a link to "opt out" of sharing your personal information with others. The email is a scam.

Sheriff's officials say 40 million people have already fallen to this phishing attack.
