State Representative Blaine Wilhour said our government was not prepared for the influx of requests for unemployment that happened because of the pandemic this year.
Some cases are folks and small businesses attempting to get relief, other times there are people acting like you to get more money in their pockets.
"The bottom line on this is the government was never really designed to take care of people in this regard," he said.
Wilhour's advice is to keep trying to call and reach out to your local state representatives.
