Unemployment Claim Scam in Iowa
Posted on Dec 30, 2016
From the Business Record: " Phishing scam targets Iowa Workforce Development clients
Iowa Workforce Development warns that a phishing scam via email has targeted Iowans filing for unemployment insurance benefits. The source of the email is a bit of a clue, referring to "unemployment assist," a phrase that isn't exactly what the state would use. The email is from "[email protected]" Do not click it. IWD does not ask for sensitive personal information via email. The state plans to send information information about your account through the U.S. Postal Service. If you provided credit card information to the suspect email, call your credit card company or bank immediately. If you are concerned about identity theft, contact the attorney general's office at 515-281-5926."
