UI Fraud Alert: Fake Filing Website

26 May 2021

The Department is aware of fraudulent communications sent by text and email that state ‘We noticed an error with your Unemployment Claim’, and prompt the recipient to ‘Review your Claim’. Links in these fraudulent communications lead to a fraudulent website that appears similar the Online Claimant Portal. See the image below for more detail. 

Reminders for Claimants:

  • Do not click links from suspicious emails or text messages, or provide any information. If you are not sure if the communication is legitimate, please call the Department of Labor's UI Call Center to verify that it is the Department and not a fraudster. 
  • Check the URL and make sure you are filing a claim on the correct website, and please remember to do so only through the Department of Labor website (labor.vermont.gov) or by contacting the Claimant Assistance Center if you are unable to access the online portal. 

Additional information and updates on fraud, including alerts from known scams and attempts to steal personal information, can be found on labor.vermont.gov/ui-fraud.
