Potential Scam Alert

NOVEMBER 23, 2020 –

Have you received Pandemic Unemployment Assistance? If so, you could be the target of a scam.

The scammers send notifications that look as if they are from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). Using the agency’s logo, they encourage you to click on a link to get a pandemic stimulus benefit.  This is a SCAM. See below for a photo of the email scam.

ODJFS does not send these types of communication. If you have received this notification, do not click on the link. Please report it to the Ohio Attorney General’s office at 1-800-282-0515 or ohioprotects.org.
