State Unemployment office is claiming I was paid for 30 hrs for a job I never took. Even if the business did send me a check, I never received any money or check...but the Unemployment office says I am responsible for THREE weeks of benefits to reimburse,

The State Unemployment Office is coming after me a YEAR later, claiming I had committed fraud. They claim a job had paid me for 30 hrs that I didn't claim...except I never worked for the job beyond the interview (Where I was informed of the hours and travel I couldn't manage). I never got any direct deposit or paper check, so I never claimed any income. The Unemployment Office is saying I owe them for THREE weeks of benefits to reimburse! Even if a check was sent out (That I had no knowledge of and received zero income from) it would only be for the one week on the log. They are claiming I owe for three weeks because "I could have been working those weeks."

Essentially, they are saying that even though I had received no income, I should have said I received income anyway to avoid being charged with fraud...in other words, I should have committed fraud, but in their favor.
