Did you mean: 

I received a TurboTax email or text message, addressed to a stranger. Do I need to worry?

No. Neither you nor the intended recipient's identity is being compromised in any way.

The intended recipient simply entered the wrong email address or phone number – which happened to be yours – by mistake.

We do require email validation at e-file; which means, that in most cases, if anybody entered your e-mail address by mistake they will be forced to correct it when they attempt to e-file. You can delete the messages. Always feel free to contact us if you have any concerns about your privacy.
