Most leads come from a quarterly cross-match of audits sent to
employers. The audit checks for claimants who received benefits in the same

catching fraudulent activity. If you believe someone is fraudulently collecting
unemployment benefits, please report it immediately to our Fraud Investigations
unit. All allegations of fraud are investigated.
