Your “Corporate Back-Office” News Page
Here is a great example of a fraudulent and fake email attempt to gain access to your Office 365 account. The subject line and even the body of the message look somewhat authentic.
Here is how to spot the fake:
2. Microsoft / Office 365 does not send out notices for passwords that are about to expire. If your Office 365 account is configured to require password changes, then you will be notified when you log in.
3. Take note of the verbiage: We recommend that you "Validate". There is no reason in the English language for the quotes or the capitalization. This is more esoteric, but the language/syntax is just not quite right.
4. If you check the link of the validate button, you find: durasp-usa-cc/m1soft/ in the link. Definitely not Microsoft, and should not be followed/clicked.
Always be suspicious of incoming emails, and always be diligent.

Classification of employees and contractors
And that's just to name a few. In 2013, the Internal Revenue Service issued 6.8 million penalties, totaling $4.5 billion related to employment taxes alone. The penalties aren't surprising when you consider that some 40% of small business owners don't use an accountant at all.
"There are so many little rules for a small business owner to stay on top of," says David McKelvey, a tax and business consulting partner at New York-based accounting firm Friedman LLP...[Read More]
CORBAK – Office Technology Solutions began as its’ own entity in October 2016. But our outsourcing roots and experience go well beyond the infancy of a new company.

Operating as the “back-office solutions” support team and through market demanded growth, the back-office group, (what is now) CORBAK – Office.Technology Solutions, gained a life of its’ own, growing into a viable outsourcing solution for our clients throughout the community and beyond.
ADDED VALUE- In 2015, one of the area’s most well know, respected and successful information technology consultative services companies, “PC Doctors”, was acquired and made a part of the Back-Office group, completing the Outsourcing Team.
