Unemployment Scams by Cindy Clampet Assistant Family Resource Management Specialist

Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service

The Oklahoma Employment Securities Commission (OESC) has reported that at least 3800 fraudulent unemployment claims have been filed by scammers since mid-March of 2020. Unsuspecting businesses and workers who have not filed for unemployment are receiving letters from the OESC either at their homes or at the Human Resources office at their place of work. These letters contain a copy of the unemployment claim either made by a worker who still has a job or perhaps by a person who has never worked at that business. Scammers are attempting to claim unemployment benefits in someone else’s name and can hurt the employment record of the employee as well as hurt the business itself.

If you receive a letter regarding an unemployment claim that you did not file the OESC recommends that you follow the following steps:

1) Contact the HR department at your place of work so they can file a fraud claim.

2) Call the OESC fraud department at 405-557-7157 or e-mail them at [email protected]

3) Contac your area police department to file a fraud report

4) Contact major credit bureaus since the breach involves social security numbers, birth dates and other personal information. Major credit bureaus are Experian.com, TransUnion.com, and Equifax.com.

5) Contact your bank and make them aware of the situation. Your place of employment may have additional steps for you to take.

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter also recommends that you contact his office to fill out a claim form to help his office investigate fraud claims at [email protected].

PRIVATE APPLICATORS

Beginning January 1, 2020 the Private Applicator rules changed. The old system of getting study materials from the OSU Extension office including the test and completing that test at your kitchen table changed.

The rule beginning January 1, 2020 is that anyone seeking a Private Applicator license register online and be tested at one of a half a dozen testing facilities across the state. The closest to Pontotoc County is McAlester. However, due to the COVID 19 situation, Private Applicators are being allowed to test from home. This will be short lived and is only for those that have an expired Private Applicator card.

If you are in this situation and needing your Private Applicator license, you can call 405-744-9037 and request a packet. It will be very important that you take the test and send the test in as quick as possible.

If you need more information contact the OSU Extension Center at 580-332-2153.

I have posted these pics to several different pages with some interesting theories, just never a definitive answer. It was suggested that someone here might be able to explain what’s happening here🤞🏻
