FENTON MAN REPORTS SOMEONE FILED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT IN HIS NAME
At 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 4, a Fenton man reported to Fenton police that his identity had been stolen. He said his employer received a letter and card from the unemployment office indicating the man had filed for unemployment. The man had not filed for unemployment, but a debit card had been sent to his home. Lt. Jeff Cross said the man was not out any money, however someone had used his personal information to file for unemployment. Cross said with so many people filing for unemployment because of the pandemic, the likelihood of fraud has increased. Identity theft such as this could result in being denied in the future if a resident files for unemployment legitimately.
