    How does this work?

    GF receives a debit card from USA bank. This card is basically from Colorado department of unemployment; problem is she didn't file for unemployment. Because of the 4th; she will be dead in the water on reporting this until Monday morning.
    Ok Irate4x4 peeps; is this a serious breach of her identity? How are the fuckers going to get money from CO unemployment without the card in their grubby hands? (she didn't activate it) We have found a few mentions of this scam on the internet, but nothing with any details on how this bull shit is played out.

    Wait until the office is open and call to see WTF it's about? Until then, she did the right thing...nothing.

        I think there would be at least $600 bucks of Federal monies. GF is NOT going to activate it.. We are basically concerned about just how much of her identity was compromised; throwing fraud alerts on all her stuff is a fucking pain in the ass.

        Lesson learned for her; check all your accounts frequently! Don't wait for the fucking mail!

          Debit Card has to have an account, the account is probably already empty.

          The card is just a byproduct of the scam of collecting money in someone else's name.

          I'd be putting my shit on lockdown.

              You shoud have stopped your wife...but I guess 7 figures IS a lot of money...

                There was a story about this on the news last night. Exact same scenario. People receiving debit cards for unemployment benefits they did not apply for.

                There is a link to the .gov website in the article to lead you to next steps, report, etc.

                    Good luck, I have heard horror stories of people taking days to get thru to unemployment.
