Staff Reports

The Texas Workforce Commission is advising those applying for Unemployment Insurance of fraudulent calls from those trying to take advantage of the COVID-19 situation.
The TWC warns of calls that could be seeking sensitive and personal information through deceit involving those applying for unemployment, according to a news release.
Some of the information that may be asked for during these fraudulent calls include:
The individual asks for a credit card number.
The individual says there is a fee for processing the claim.
The individual asks for more than the last four digits of your bank account and routing number.
TWC Specialists will ask for a confirmation of identity as well as your Social Security Number and date or birth but will never ask for a credit card number. There’s no fee for filing for Unemployment Insurance.
If you have filed for unemployment and receive a call from somebody you’re not sure of their identity, avoid giving out the following information:
Phone Number
Address
Social Security Number
Personal Identification Number (PIN)
