Call the IRS directly of you want to investigate. It’s possible someone else used your social security number to claim unemployment. We get calls from IRS scammers about once a year but if your letter looks authentic then call the IRS directly and let them know. They will fix your record. Make sure you call the real IRS and not a fake number provided by scammers.

The IRS will NEVER contact you via email. Completely ignore it. They will ALWAYS contact you by USPS, always. Its amazing to me how many people don't understand this, I guess immigrants don't get this. THE IRS CONTACTS "CLIENTS" BY US MAIL FIRST, ALWAYS. If alternatives are possible they'll let you know in the letter. Usually its a personal visit to the closest field office, I know this as my best friend is married to an IRS field agent. Never reapond to an email claiming to be from the IRS.

The IRS will always send a letter to you through snail mail only. No phone calls or emails. However keep in mind that sometimes illegals make up social security numbers just to stay employed, and when it's flagged they make up new numbers, or buy them from sellers. Occasionally it happens that your number might be used already and you don't know it, which leads to situations like that. Just keep all your records for years in case you are ever audited.

I know… I know many ppl that do that…I’m not trying to affect anyone in any way like u say illegals buy fake socials to work and bring food to their table for their families and I understand that but if that’s the case they should tell me something or tell them something to that person that’s working my social by mistake or not because I try calling the company in which my social is being used and the lady I spoke to didn’t wanna give me any more info and after I told her that one of their employees is using my social she said “give me a min” and hung up I try calling again and she answer and told me she couldn’t give me any answer and to stop calling

Turn it into your local FBI if you have any of the information on them

Turn it over to the FBI in your area and the next time a scammer calls you and want something more you like your credit card number keep giving them fake number keep them on the line because they have to pay for that, I've had them call me tell me that I owe them money because of my social security number was stolen etcetera etcetera, none of those people will call you from the social Security office they will send you a letter and if they say I owe them they're still lying, but if you're smart enough to handle it keeping them on the phone for as long as you can will cost them money not you.

Contact your state rep. Email is best with a scanned copy of the letter. Follow up with a call and insist on assistance with this. It could end up on your credit which is a nightmare to reverse.
