Sprouts Employee Information Compromised in Phishing Scam


According to TheDenverChannel.com personal information included on tax forms of Sprouts employees was compromised in a phishing scam.

Last week, a payroll department employee at the company’s headquarters in Arizona responded to an email thought to be from a company senior executive. In the email, the person asked for the 2015 W-2 statements of all Sprouts workers.

The employee complied with the request, but the company quickly realized that the email was not legitimate and contacted federal authorities.

Sprouts did not say how many people had their information compromised. The company employs more than 21,000 people at 220+ stores across the country, according to its website.

Sprouts Farmers Market in Franklin held its grand opening this month. There were more than 100 people standing in line waiting for the doors to open. The store is located at 1010 Murfreesboro Road.
