CHEYENNE — The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) is warning of a phishing scam website bearing DWS’s Unemployment Insurance division name. The website lists false contact numbers and information.
DWS is working with state law enforcement to shut down the fraudulent website.
Phishing is a trick internet scammers use to collect information using false e-mails and websites. The scammers often replicate websites or emails of legitimate entities that contain links to web pages and have been disguised to look nearly identical to legitimate sites.
If questions arise regarding whether a website or e-mail is legitimate, contact DWS directly at (307) 777-6911 or visit DWS’s official website at wyomingworkforce.org.
