Four residents targeted in unemployment scam

June 26, 2020

 Bloomfield Township police responded to four separate unemployment fraud cases during the week of June 15.

In three of the four cases, the victim received a letter from the state of Michigan to inform them of their unemployment status that they hadn’t applied for. A letter from the state, questioning the resident’s unemployment request, was sent to their current employer during the fourth incident.

The victims were not aware of how their identities were obtained or who committed the crime for any of the cases.

Bloomfield Township police are investigating.
