This scheme targets tax practitioners that use Electronic Return Originator (ERO). Entities that represent themselves as Fastsupport.com or Onlyforsupport.com are contacting practitioners after they have identified which ERO the practitioner uses to transmit returns. The caller suggests the ERO needs reinstall or correct problems with their software. The caller states they are working on behalf of the ERO and can help resolve the problem by having the practitioner connect to their website, get a passcode from them, and then give the caller access to the practitioner's computer. Once they have access to the computer, they take over the practitioner's accounts.
