DWS Warns of Telephone Scam Targeting Businesses


The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) is warning of a telephone scam by a company identifying itself as "U.S. Federal Labor Compliance." Wyoming business owners have been the targets of the phone calls. The recipients of the fraudulent calls are told that they need to purchase an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance package for $249.50. If the purchase is not made, the scam claims that the business will undergo an OSHA inspection. DWS is working with state law enforcement to identify the culprits of the fraudulent calls.

If you receive such a call, please report it to your local authorities, and contact us at 1-877-WORK-WYO.
