Beware.? We?ve now heard from multiple clients that fraudulent unemployment claims were filed under their name and SSN. Scary stuff. Here is the advice we?re giving to those clients:
- Visit your state’s Dept. of Unemployment Assistance and search for “how to report a fraudulent claim”
- For our state, Massachusetts, the webpage to report suspected fraudulent claim is?https://www.mass.gov/forms/unemployment-fraud-reporting-form.
- It probably makes sense to freeze your credit too.
- More info is available at www.annualcreditreport.com, which is a helpful website maintained by the 3 credit reporting bureaus.
