It seems a LOT of people are getting a message that their benefits have been temporarily suspended because it "***may be tied to fraudulent activity.***"
I just saw this half an hour ago, about 30 minutes before 2021 kicked in.
I HAVE NOT COMMITTED FRAUD! My rent is due tomorrow, along with other bills! The state has SHUT DOWN businesses that employed me! I cannot find work! This is NOT MY FAULT!!!
Given that so many people are getting the same message, it may be an error on the part of EDD.
IDGAF, and some of the top people at EDD need to be fired.
"You have been receiving unemployment benefits, but we have temporarily suspended your claim because it may be tied to fraudulent activity.
You will receive further instruction from EDD on how to verify your identity beginning January 6, 2021."
Who else has received this stupid message from CA EDD to welcome the new year?
Or is it just me 😬
