Can't find anything on the topic....

Friday I received a letter from the unemployment office stating that I have filed a fraudulent claim, and that I was not laid off due to lack of work, but instead discharged. This is not the case. I have been drawing unemployment now for 5 months. I know from working with my previous employer that when an initial claim is filed, the employer receives a notice and what they say determines your eligibility....

I was found eligible.

Why now is this occurring? Could it be a clerical error? The letter is basically accusing me of fraud, which is scary in itself. I assume also that I will not get my unemployment during this pending state. Is that correct? Has anyone experienced this?

I know that I need to fill the letter out and return it, but this all just seems to be ridiculous. I don't know if I need to visit my previous employer and ask them what's going on! In frantic mode. My husband works but does not make enough to cover the bills as I am the "bread winner" of the household.

Any suggestions/advice would be much appreciated!!!

I would go directly to the employment office to see if the letter is legit. It could be a scam trying to get personal info. And I would do that the first thing tomorrow morning!

You might want to ask about this in the Unemployment forum, as there are many people on that forum who work in various agencies and have great information. Your problem may not be Arkansas-specific, though I understand that's where you live. Good luck to you.
