Montana Departments of Labor & Industry, Justice Warn of Fraudulent Text Messages
July 21, 2021
The Montana Department of Labor & Industry and Montana Department of Justice are warning residents of fraudulent text messages claiming to be from the state. The agencies are aware of at least four smishing text messages that are being sent to Unemployment Insurance Claimants and non-claimants.
This smishing attempt asks claimants to click on a link to verify their identity on their Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim. DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK. These texts are not coming from DLI. It is possible that you may get a text message from ID.me or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
