The Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training is warning about 350 users of its online career center not to share their personal information and download files from a fake company that was apparently set up to steal personal identities. The agency says someone fraudulently used an employer’s identification information to set up a fictitious company that contacted 350 users of EmployRI.org. Potential victims were asked to set up Yahoo instant-messaging accounts, import personal information, and download particular files. The agency says it will provide up to three months of free credit monitoring service to victims.
