Lansing, MI – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has issued an alert advising residents to be aware of a current scam taking advantage of claimants who are collecting unemployment benefits.
Claimants are receiving an email from a Gmail account that appears to be from the Unemployment Insurance Agency asking for personal information. The scammer is also attaching what looks like an actual communication from the UIA in an apparent effort to strengthen the credibility of the email.
If you received this email, do not respond. UIA would never ask you to reply to an email with your personal information.
Anyone who has fallen for this scam should immediately Report Fraud or Identity Theft with the UIA. They should also monitor their banking and account information each time they certify for benefits.
