Alert to Wisconsin Employers: Notice of E-Mail Scam
If you receive an e-mail that claims to be sent on behalf of the New York or Wisconsin "Division of Unemployment Assistance" @detma.org that requests information about a former employee, do not reply to the message and do not click the link in the message.
This appears to be an e-mail identity theft scam.
Neither the New York Department of Labor nor the state of Wisconsin's DWD Unemployment Insurance Division sent the e-mail. Neither office would request confidential information in this manner.
If you believe your identity has been compromised or stolen, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
You can also file a consumer protection complaint at Wisconsin's Office of Privacy Protection by downloading a form at http://datcp.wi.gov/uploads/Consumer/pdf/IDTheftComplaintform601.pdf, e-mailing the Office of Privacy Protection at DATCPWisconsinPrivacy@wisconsin.gov, or by calling the Consumer Hotline at 1-800-422-7128.
Visit the Wisconsin Office of Privacy Protection at http://datcp.wi.gov/Consumer/Office_of_Privacy_Protection/index.aspx for additional resources on protecting the identity of your business and employees.
