Fraudulent email claims to offer “bonus” unemployment benefits

Updated July 13, 2022

 

If you get the following email or something similar, know that it’s a scam. Don’t click on any links in the email!

The text of the email says: “You may be eligible for the new U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR COVID-19 SUPPLEMENT BONUS. $5,700 could be direct deposited into your account. Click the link below to apply.”

 

Background


Unemployment insurance customers in various states in the U.S. have recently received the scam email posted above. Congress has not authorized any new pandemic-related benefits at this time. This email is a phishing scam.

Phishing is when criminals send malicious emails designed to trick people into falling for a scam. Often, they want users to reveal personal or financial information.
