COLUMBIA, S.C. - Personal information for nearly 5,000 people in South Carolina may have been leaked.
The unemployment agency said a former worker downloaded files to a personal flash drive, including Social Security numbers.
Notifications started going out Wednesday to current and former employees, their children and their beneficiaries. No one receiving unemployment benefits was affected.
