Department of Labor warns of phishing scam
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - The Vermont Department of Labor is warning of a phishing scam involving workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance related to COVID-19.
Some people were sent scam emails and texts with a link to an application or web form instructing them to “file for COVID-19 workers’ compensation benefits.”
The message says “eligible workers” receive $3,750. But it’s not true.
If you get an email like this, reach out to the Department of Labor. Don’t click on the links.
