Reminder: Beware of Scams

Unfortunately, scammers are continuing to prey on Colorado unemployment recipients by posing as CDLE. Some claimants have reported receiving text messages purporting to be from CDLE directing claimants to log into their account to “activate new features.” As a reminder, CDLE does not send text messages with links to MyUI+. If you receive a text message asking you to click a link to log in to your account or “verify information,” please delete the message. Do not click the link, as it is likely an attempt by a scammer to obtain personally identifiable information. Scammers have gone as far as to create websites which look similar or identical to MyUI+ or other official CDLE websites, with similar URLs, in order to defraud Coloradans.

If you ever have any doubts or concerns about links you received via text messages, emails, or elsewhere, simply visit the official CDLE website at ColoradoUI.gov and log into your account from there instead of clicking the link.

The Scams page on the UI Daily Dashboard includes additional tips to protect yourself from unemployment insurance scams, including screenshots of verified scams CDLE has identified. For more consumer protection information, please visit StopFraudColorado.gov.
