The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) is warning businesses that an email with a subject line “Important Notice (Urgent Response Required)” is not from the agency, but a phishing email targeting Nevada employers. Phishing is a type of online scam that targets people by sending them an email that appears to be from a well-known source – in this case, DETR.
These email attacks typically ask the reader to take a specific action which gives the attackers the opportunity to collect information which can be used to commit fraud. The State has confirmed that the email message has been sent to several employers and is being sent from the email address: DETR <email@example.com>.
It is important to note that this address is NOT an official DETR email address.
Here’s an example of phishing email: Attention: The Nevada Department of Employment and Rehabilitation (DETR) is sending you this notice as a security measure regarding the recent system upgrade, and we experienced a minor problem with mailing addresses. Individuals who applied and filled for benefits during the month had been approved but our mailing system had addresses mixed up hence having the benefits sent to different and wrong addresses.Your address was one of the mailing addresses, so we urge you to NOT destroy any mail you receive from the Nevada Department of Employment and Rehabilitation (DETR).
(IT GOES ON….)Send a reply to acknowledge and affirm you have received this important notice for further instructions. Thank you, Unemployment Insurance (UI)DETR, State of Nevada, U.S.A.
DETR has absolutely no involvement with this type of unauthorized practice. DETR does not send these kinds of messages through email and does not ask employers to respond to an email to obtain further instructions. Employers receiving an email of this kind or similar digital correspondence are advised to delete the message and not respond.

Room opens at 11 on Monday, October 19th. The informal social hour runs from 11 to noon, and though the recording may have started, that portion will be trimmed off so it won’t be part of the meeting video. Trish’s presentation will start on or about the stroke of noon, with Q&A to follow.
By clicking the meeting link you will find yourself in the waiting room, from where you will be admitted as quickly as humanly possible, usually within seconds. We’ve only been zoom-bombed once, but once was enough to learn that a waiting room is a necessity. It keeps Zoom bots from showing up uninvited in the middle of an otherwise orderly meeting and wreaking havoc. Zoom bombings occur because somebody (usually with the best of intentions) puts the meeting link on social media, so please don’t.
