Unemployment Fraud

There is an active, large scale fraud operation involving the Colorado unemployment benefits program occurring at this time. You may receive notification indicating that someone has filed a claim in your name. You might actually receive a US Bank debit card in the mail. Please follow these steps to make a report. Filing some kind of report will protect your identity.

  1. Contact the Social Security Administration (SSA)
  2. Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
  3. Contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
  4. Contact the three credit agencies EquifaxExperian, and TransUnion to freeze your credit and protect your identity

This scheme is looking to defraud the unemployment system. The only time you need to make a local police report would be if one of these agencies asks for a case number. Local police agencies have limited resources when it comes to large scale scams.

If you receive a US Bank card in the mail, do not activate it. If someone calls you in reference to the card do not give out any information.
