Colorado Labor Department software has signaled thousands of lawsuits



DENVER (AP) – A fraud detection program included in the upgraded software of the Department of Labor and Employment in Colorado has alerted thousands of claims for unemployment benefits as suspicious.

Colorado Public Radio reports that since the department completed the installation on Sunday, the anti-fraud system has accounted for about 20 percent of approximately 32,000 payment requests. The department says the system is looking for 27 attributes of suspicious accounts, ranging from plaintiffs over the age of 100 to people listed as deceased in public records.

An official says there is a possibility of suspending benefits for an unknown number of people mistakenly caught in the software-powered network.
