Idaho Dept. of Labor warns employers about fraudulent email requests

The Idaho Department of Labor is warning that emails being sent to employers seeking information on former employees who may have filed unemployment insurance claims are fraudulent, and employers should ignore them. The emails, purporting to be from the state “Division of Unemployment Assistance” and coming from the email address claim@detma.org have been reported so far in the eastern United States and most recently in Montana. They appear to be an attempt at identity theft, the department said. In Idaho, the agency responsible for unemployment insurance claims is the Unemployment Insurance/Benefits Division of the Idaho Department of Labor, and it doesn't request confidential employee information by email; the department instead would make such requests by telephone, mail, or its secure employer electronic system, ECORE.
