  • 0

ALPHARETTA, Ga. –– A 57-year-old Alpharetta woman notified police on Dec. 9 that she had received a letter in the mail on December 9 from the Georgia Department of Labor regarding an application she never made for unemployment benefits.

She stated that while she has been unemployed for years, she has not filed for benefits. The letter was a denial of benefits because she failed to provide the correct information.

She went online and was advised by the Georgia Department of Labor to file a police report.

She has also filed a report online with them and is awaiting word back.

Authorities have not been able to determine who used her information to obtain unemployment benefits.
