We have numerous reports of people’s personal information being used to file a fraudulent claim for unemployment benefits by someone else. Several of our officers and a dispatcher have received letters from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission notifying them that a claim for benefits has been filed in their name. Several civilians have called in with reports of the same issue. If you receive a letter from the unemployment office for benefits you did not seek, or believe that a claim has been falsely filed in your name, please contact the fraud department at FRAUD@OESC.STATE.OK.US or go to the Oklahoma Employment Office website. They are looking into these cases and working to find the perpetrators.
