If you have received an e-mail that claims to be sent on behalf of the Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) with an email address ending in @detma.org that requests information about a former employee, do not reply to the message and do not click the link in it. This is because the email appears to be an identity theft scam.

Neither the United States Department of Labor nor the Office of Unemployment Compensation at the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services sent the e-mail. The District of Columbia does not process DUA claims nor would either office request confidential information in this manner.

If you are an employer and responded to a request for employment or wage information from the Division of Unemployment Assistance or if you are a District resident and believe your identity has been compromised or stolen, please contact your local law enforcement agency.

The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) enforces the District of Columbia’s Consumer Protection Laws. You can file a consumer protection complaint with the Office of the Attorney General at http://oag.dc.gov/node/442592, e-mail the Office of the Attorney General at consumer.protection@dc.gov, or contact OAG at (202) 442-9828.
