Report Fraud & Identity Theft

The Department of Labor & Industry's (L&I) security vendor ID.me has identified phishing attempts and fraud scams leveraging social media, text messaging, and email to lure unsuspecting individuals into providing personal information so that the scammers can claim their identity. We encourage Pennsylvanians to remain vigilant and report fraud by selecting one of the categories below to get started.

What to Expect 

While the volume of new fraud reports continues to decline, L&I staff are still working through a sizeable number of fraudulent filings from prior months, which must be handled individually. 

Due to an unprecedented number of UC claims (and, by default, fraudulent UC claims), it may take an extended time for these claims to be properly handled. Therefore, please DO NOT report these claims a second time or call to inquire about status; staff is working on the issue and continues to work on reports as they come in.
