New Hampshire Employment Security (NHES) has recently become aware of an identity theft scam being directed at employers. NHES is warning that e-mails coming from an address ending in “@detma.org” and using a subject line referring to “time-sensitive material” are being sent to businesses in an effort to obtain employees’ wage and separation information. The fake e-mails seem to be from an administrative agency, but they aren’t. NHES states that it doesn’t seek information in that manner and that such e-mails should be ignored.
The full text of the alert and a sample scam e-mail may be found here. Employers, beware!
