Windsor PD Directs Residents to New Tool Amid Increased Reports of Unemployment Fraud

“It’s surprising how there has been a rise in fraudulent unemployment claims and other instances of fraud and identity theft since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Commander Lopez of the Windsor Police Department. “When you live and work in a small town you don’t always realize how much is happens unless you’re in law enforcement. We’re coming up to the one-year anniversary since the pandemic first hit our region and since then, our department has experienced a marked increase in these reports which puts a drain on our local law enforcement resources.”

Thankfully, to help ease the load from local agencies, a webpage with valuable resources and a reporting tool has been implemented at the state-level. To help victims report unemployment fraud, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) launched Specifically, residents who received a Reliacard debit card or other paperwork from CDLE need to report it via the state website.

In addition to the unemployment fraud reporting tool, the webpage has information about monitoring credit, protecting personal identifying information, and recovering from identity theft.

Identity theft or fraud can also be reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at The FTC's website also includes resources about recovering from identity theft.
