Hawaii Unemployment Office Warning Employers of E-mail Scam

The Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) is warning employers of an e-mail scam in which employers in various states, including Hawaii, are receiving e-mails that claim to be from the Massachusetts or New York “Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA).” The emails declare that former employee(s) have filed unemployment claims and request the employer to open an attachment and/or access a weblink for purposes of providing confidential employment information.

Sample of the email

This is an identify theft scam. Do not open the attachment or otherwise respond to it. The Hawaii Unemployment Insurance Division does not request information on behalf of other states, nor does it request confidential employment information in this manner.
