WorkForce West Virginia said it has been notified by the U.S. Department of Labor that some employers have received fraudulent emails requesting employer-claimant information.
A West Virginia employer has reported receiving a fraudulent email requesting employee wage and separation information, the state agency said.
"This email states it is from WorkForce West Virginia and requests that the employer complete wage and separation information on former employees on form 1062/1074," the agency said in a notice posted on its website Wednesday.
"These emails were not generated by WorkForce West Virginia and should be deleted immediately," the agency said. "If you receive the above-mentioned email communication, please be aware it is a scam."
The agency asks that suspected fraud be reported to a local WorkForce office or to the state's Unemployment Compensation Benefits and Technical Support Section at 304-558-3309.
