In the last six weeks, the Erie Police Department received 46 reports of identity theft using the state's unemployment system. The criminals steal identities and make false unemployment claims. The victims may receive a loaded U.S. Bank ReliaCard in the mail. The Department of Labor recommends that anyone who has received a card for unemployment benefits that did not apply should destroy the card, report to www.usbankreliacard.com, and report the fraud with the Colorado Department of Labor. If you believe you are a victim of identity theft or fraud, the Erie Police Department recommends you complete a report of identity theft or fraud on Erie's report a fraud webpage.
