It’s horrifying but not a huge surprise that the scammers have found a way to use the Pandemic Unemployment Insurance in their dirty little web of lies. If you receive a letter in the mail from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue advising of a “Notice of Monetary Determination”, and you did not file a claim, please report the claim to the Unemployment Insurance Program Integrity Department by going to their website. REPORT A FRAUDULENT CLAIM
After you have filled out the online form, an agent from the Integrity Department will contact you.
While it is still an unknown how the claim was processed or what information the scammers have of yours, it is always advisable to review your credit report for any suspicious activity. You can get a FREE copy of your report on an annual basis by going to: FreeCreditReport
