If you or someone you know has been the subject of unemployment fraud, it's important to report it to the proper agencies.
As always, contact your local law enforcement agency to file a report. Also, report it to the government's identity theft website, Internet Crime Complaint Center, and Office of the Inspector General.
The sheriff's office says it's also important to call the Social Security Administration to have an alert put on your social security number and to run a credit check on yourself through freecreditreport.com to see if any scammers opened any accounts using your social security number.

You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
