Dog gets approved for unemployment
    2018-02-05  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

In late January, a dog named Ryder was reportedly let go from his job at a restaurant chain in Michigan. And because he lost his job, the government provided him with unemployment benefits of about US$360 per week.

“So my dog Ryder gets approved for unemployment benefits of $360 per week,” Ryder’s owner, Michael Haddock, wrote on Facebook, according to ABC affiliate WZZM. He added, “Not sure what he is going to do with the money but should be interesting. I knew he was clever but he surprised me on this one.”

Haddock, an attorney in Saugatuck, Michigan, told WZZM that he received a letter last weekend from the State of Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency addressed to his dog — sort of. It was sent to “Michael Ryder.”

Haddock said the employer listed on the letter was a restaurant chain in Metro Detroit.

“My name is Michael; my dog is Ryder,” Haddock told the station. “I was surprised to see it, but I had a good laugh, actually.”

But it was no laughing matter to Talent Investment Agency spokesman Chris DeWitt. Talent Investment Agency is a part of Unemployment Insurance Agency, which is cracking down on false claims.

The UIA announced it’s creating a special investigative unit to handle the recent increase in false claims, according to WZZM.

The UIA said its computer system did send out the initial letter to Haddock’s address, according to WZZM. However, it was flagged as suspicious later and the agency has since sent another letter to Haddock’s address denying the claim.

“It’s important to note that no money was paid out,” DeWitt said. “Criminals get a hold of people’s personal information like name, address and Social Security numbers and file a false claim. This is a crime. I saw the story and it was a case of incorrect information being sent to the UIA for a false claim. There have been data breaches that have happened over the last few years. Criminals are using that information to file claims.”

一月底,一只叫莱德的狗据说被密歇根州的一家连锁餐厅解雇了。因为他失业了,政府为他提供每周约360美元的失业救济金。据美国广播公司WZZM电台报道,狗主人迈克尔•哈多克在脸书网上写道:“我的狗莱德得到了每周360美元的失业救济金。”

哈多克还说:“不知道莱德打算如何花这笔钱,但这应该很有趣。我知道他很聪

明,但这件事还是让我大吃一惊。”

哈多克是密歇根州索格塔克市的一名律师,他告诉WZZM,上周末他收到了一封密歇根州失业保险机构寄来的信件,“收件人”

应该是他的狗。

这封信是寄给“迈克尔•莱德”的。

哈多克称,信件中提到的雇主是大底特律都会区的一家连锁餐厅。

哈多克告诉WZZM:“我的名字是迈克尔,我的狗叫莱德,这个‘收件人’让我很意外,实话说,我觉得很好笑。”

但对于密歇根人力资源局的克里斯•德威特来说,这件事非同小可。人力资源局是失业保险局的一个分支机构,后者严厉打击犯罪分子的骗保行为。

据WZZM电台报道,失业保险局宣布,他们已经成立了一支专项调查小组来处理近来日益增多的骗保行为。

WZZM称,该机构表示,其电脑系统的确曾向哈多克的地址发送过第一封信件。不过,他们后来发现该失业索赔有疑点并已经向哈多克的地址发送了另一封信件拒绝索赔。德威特表示:“重要的是,这个钱没有付出去。犯罪分子掌握了人们的个人信息,比如姓名、住址和社保号码,并提交虚假的索赔申请。这是犯罪行为。我看到这则报道了。这是一个向失业保险局提供错误信息来骗保的案例。在过去几年间发生过数据泄露事件,犯罪分子利用这些信息骗保。”
