I am a relatively new employee and I'm only several weeks into my new job. Today I received a letter in the mail regarding my employee benefits account being successfully set up, the particular type for which I don't remember having elected to sign up for. The company administering the benefits plan from which the letter came from was different from the company stated in the information from HR I received on my first day.
Having worked in compliance and audit roles in the past, I felt this mismatch along with other tell-tale hints in the mailing constitute red flags of fraud. I received this email far sooner than I should have according to HR paperwork. My employer was not mentioned anywhere in the mailing. The envelope did not look professional and language on it is consistent with fraud tactics (urgent language to action...etc).
How can I approach my employer / HR to validate this event?
Update: HR confirmed this letter was indeed fraudulent. They are investigating and I also filed a complaint with USPS, given the mail was used for delivery.
