CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - WorkForce West Virginia is alerting employers about a potential scam where people claim to represent the agency and ask for financial information.

Officials say that someone posing as a WorkForce employee emailed an employer this week asking for canceled checks for unemployment tax contributions.

The Charleston Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1BgU8nR) that the email was sent from a personal email address and did not come from a WorkForce West Virginia employee.

The agency notes that its electronic correspondence is sent only from wv.gov addresses.

Any employer who receives a suspicious email is asked to call WorkForce West Virginia at 800-252-5627 or email [email protected]
