Telephone scammers are preying on the unemployed in Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services wants Ohioans to be aware of two telephone identity theft scams.

One scam asks for a credit card number and other personal information to be hired for a job.

The other requires a Social Security number in order to receive unemployment pay.

Ohioans are urged to never provide this information to unknown telephone callers.
