    From the Pennsylvania Office of Unemployment Compensation website (https://www.uc.pa.gov/Fraud/Pages/default.aspx): Scammers behind Pandemic Unemployment Assistance fraud appear to be using Social Security numbers and other personally identifiable information to apply for and receive PUA benefits.  In many situations, the victims are unaware that their personal information has been compromised.  Warning signs of a possible COVID-19 scam include for workers, receiving any type of correspondence that you filed an unemployment claim when you did not file a claim for benefits, and for employers, a claim being filed for one or more of your employees who are still working.
