The Prescott Valley Police Department is receiving numerous reports from citizens regarding fraudulent claims being opened in their names from the Department of Economic Security Unemployment Insurance Division. These cases are being opened by unknown suspects nationwide and are not easily traced to a local jurisdiction. As a result, the cases are all being referred to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office. If you receive benefits you didn’t apply for, report the fraud to DES or the Federal Trade Commission and file a criminal report with the state Attorney General’s office at www.azag.gov. Any questions, contact Prescott Valley Police at (928) 772-9261.
