Potential Scam Related to Workers' Compensation

The Workers’ Compensation Agency has received reports of a scam related to individuals seeking information on workers’ compensation claims.

In each instance an elderly person reported to us they received some communication advising them of a monetary amount they can receive from the “Workers Compensation Appeals Board." The communication asks them to call “Sgt. Mathew Moore” at 224-366-0604. They are then asked for personal identification information and instructed to send a check in order for the money to be released to them.

The Workers Compensation Appeals Board does not exist. The Workers’ Compensation Agency will NOT contact you seeking information over the phone. 

If you have any questions related to workers’ compensation you may contact our agency toll-free at 888-396-5041.
