Unemployment Insurance Fraud Convictions

Quarterly Report

Unemployment Insurance Fraud is a serious crime! In Arizona, it is a Class VI Felony to misrepresent or fail to disclose facts or to make false statements in order to obtain or increase your Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. If you knowingly make a false statement or withhold information in order to collect UI benefits to which you are not entitled, the Arizona Department of Economic Security may take civil or criminal action against you. Criminal action may result in up to 2 years in prison and fines up to $150,000 for each false statement.  Meaning, if you fraudulently receive 10 weeks of UI benefits to which you were not entitled, each week is considered as a separate false statement and you could receive up to 20 years maximum in prison and a $150,000 fine for each offense.

The following report lists the names and sentences of individuals convicted of UI fraud. Investigations were conducted by investigators assigned to the UI Unit of the DES Office of Special Investigations and prosecuted by the Arizona Attorney General's Office, Child and Family Protection Division. These court convictions are a matter of public record.  Note: while the information provided below is factual, there are often individuals who have the same or similar names or even the same name and year of birth (YOB).
