Over the past month we have seen an extraordinary increase in fraudulent unemployment claims in the state of Pennsylvania.
If a fraudulent claim is filed on behalf of you or one of your employees, the following steps are recommended:
- File a form online:
- Call the PA Fraud Hotline at 800-692-7469
a report with police:
- Contact police in the municipality you resided in at the time the unemployment fraud occurred/benefits in question were paid. A copy of the filed policy report must also be provided to the Office of Unemployment Compensation.
- Start a recovery plan with the Federal Trade Commission by visiting www.identitytheft.gov.
