"Impostors have used the stolen information of tens of thousands of people in Washington state to fraudulently receive hundreds of millions of dollars in unemployment benefits, the head of the state's Employment Security Department said Thursday.

Commissioner Suzi LeVine said the state is working with federal law enforcement, financial institutions and the U.S. Department of Labor to investigate the fraud and try to recover the money paid out during the huge spike in joblessness during the coronavirus crisis.

LeVine said she can't release specific numbers or details of the ongoing investigation. But she said that counter-measures taken by the state have "prevented hundreds of millions of additional dollars from going out to criminals and have prevented thousands of fraudulent claims being filed.""
