If you get paid through direct deposit, you better listen up because hackers are coming for you!

The FBI is warning you to be extra careful of a new scam that tricks you into giving your secure info over to who you think is your HR department.

They say hackers are trying to gain access to employee payroll accounts in order to reroute direct deposit paychecks to another account or prepaid card. 

Investigators say hackers often target employees in the education, healthcare, and aviation industries.  

If you see an email requesting personal information such as passwords or usernames, it could be a phishing scam and to call your HR department just to double check if it was legit or not.
