Department of Labor and Industrial Relations:

State Monitoring for Fraudulent Unemployment Insurance Claims

DLIR announced Wednesday it’s monitoring for fraudulent unemployment insurance claims. Multiple states have been victimized by fraudulent claims filed in recent weeks as part of a nationwide scam organized by a cybercrime gang that is believed to have obtained personal information through previous nationwide data breaches. The U.S. Secret Service issued a national alert about this international crime ring committing fraud against state unemployment programs on May 14, 2020. DLIR Director Scott Murakami said, “We are working with our federal, state and local partners to investigate and prevent fraud, while paying benefits to claimants as quickly as possible.” The department was alerted that potentially fake claims may be filed using previously stolen or fraudulent personal information, however, no personal information from claimants have been stolen from the department. The department uses program integrity measures to prevent and identify fraud and is currently coordinating with the Hawaii Bankers Association to identify suspicious accounts.
