More than three weeks after Maryland announced a massive, coordinated unemployment scam, authorities say no arrests have been made and no information has been provided on who was behind the scheme.
Meanwhile, FOX 5 continues to hear from people whose benefits were frozen as part of the $501 million fraud investigation.
The labor department has not provided a more specific number of people impacted, despite multiple requests from FOX 5.
Spokeswoman Fallon Pearre said “hundreds” of claims are being verified and reinstated every day. She also says of all the people who had to provide additional proof of identity, over 70 percent have had their documents reviewed and a determination made. But she says in over 40 percent of those cases, the additional documents were fraudulent.
