Some federal funding is coming to Maryland to help crack down on unemployment fraud.
Earlier this summer, Gov. Larry Hogan said nearly 95% of suspect fraudulent claims turned out to be fraud. Since then, the Maryland Department of Labor has detected even more out-of-state and in-state fraudulent claims.
Now, the state is getting more than $2 million from the U.S. Department of Labor to fight fraud.
There is also a specific group focused on filling out fake claims, which will help save taxpayers thousands.
