E-mail Scam Targets Employers
Authorities from several states are reporting an e-mail scam targeting employers. The e-mail message, designed to glean confidential information from employers, comes with the subject line "Action Required-Time Sensitive Material."

The e-mail will state that a former employee has recently filed for unemployment benefits and in order to process the claim, the Employment Department needs information about each former employee.

Be aware that the Oregon Employment Department does not seek information in this manner.  Should you receive an e-mail of this nature, do not respond, but do notify the office of the Attorney General.

And, it’s free of charge.
