What To Do If You're a Victim of Unemployment Fraud
Unfortunately there has been a surge on unemployment fraud cases. It began to escalate during COVID. If you've been (or believe you may be) a victim of unemployment fraud, there are steps you can take.
Contact your state's Unemployment Fraud Department. If you need assistance locating the correct phone, email or website reporting link, contact the BlackCloak Concierge team.
We recommend that you consider at least one (if not both) of the recommendations below.
- Recommendation #1: In order to ensure no loans or lines of credit can be taken out in your name, add a credit freeze with each of the three credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion).
- Recommendation #2: Add a one-year fraud alert with one of the credit reporting agencies (start with Experian and they will share with Equifax and TransUnion).
