Have any of you received a notice in your inbox saying that your benefits are suspended and you will need to verify your identity with a picture ID and something with your address on it?

Not for MV, but phishing like that happens all the time.

It's not phishing because it's on the EDD website?

What is EDD? Is it a double dose of ED?

That doesn't sound legit. Call the EDD (Employment Development Department) office nearest you and ask them if there is a problem with your account. Do not follow links or call any phone/text number in the email. It's probably a scammer trying to get personally identifying information about you in a scheme to get credit in your name to bilk credit card companies, who will in turn try to collect from you.

In your MV inbox? Or your usual email one?

... undergoing a technical term of another language in the absence of a specific word that integrates into the language is not easy; sometimes the translated meaning induces too many wrong interpretations.
Good to abbreviate, the English language is well suited to this use but let me say that much of the expressive richness is lost.
The mentality that gives rise to the ideas that then lead to a densely woven grammatical construction is also the result of a language that is not excessively abbreviated.
Imagine designing something and expressing what you want to achieve through concepts with a more precise structure because more dense can lead to results that in a physical sense are the real materialization of a much more three-dimensional vision ... a bit like making an ellipse with many points instead of a few arcs.

...subire un termine tecnico di un altra lingua in assenza di una parola specifica che si integra nel linguaggio non è facile; a volte il significato tradotto, induce troppe interpretazioni sbagliate.
Buono per abbreviare, la lingua inglese è bene adatta a questo uso ma permetti che io dica che si perde molto della ricchezza espressiva.
La mentalità che da origine alle idee che poi sfociano in una costruzione grammaticale a trama più fitta, è anche frutto di un linguaggio non eccessivamente abbreviato.
Immagina di progettare qualcosa e che esprimere quello che si vuole ottenere attraverso concetti con struttura più precisa perchè più fitta può portare a risultati che in senso fisico sono la materializzazione reale di una visione molto più tridimensionale.... un po 'come fare un'ellisse con molti punti invece di pochi archi.

Check who it's really sent by. I get messages all the time that my Paypal account has been suspended, or has $15,000 in it and I need to log in to verify my account so they can give me the money, but they are never from paypal.com, or from banks where I don't have an account that need me to log in to check my account. If the EDD were to send something like that, they would most likely put some of the information they already have in the email, and it would be from a .gov site.

Phishing. An email sent specifically to retrieve personal information. Passwords, using a login link that looks right but isn't. Similar attempts for name, address, CC number, etc.

I received religious messages in PM from a member who has never published on the forum ...
Nothing bad on the subject but the links are the ones to watch out for, they seem innocent but ... No ... I don't trust you.

EDD Identity Verification
The EDD is the unemployment administration in California. I'm sorry to be unclear in my post. This was not phishing, my inbox on the EDD website.

In which case double-check by some other means that it is from them - especially after the Solarwinds hacking of government (federal and state) websites. There must be some means of contacting a human.

I suspect a hacking attempt. I received verification demands like that supposedly from the IRS. I'd suggest forwarding the whole email with headers to the EDD site administrator or abuse address. Govermnent agencies don't send emails like that. If you are concerned that it might be real log into your EDD account to direct on their website and see if there is a problem with your account. Odds are there is not but if there is you can correct it there or get a phone number to call. Someone tried to hack my E pressToll account and I have to telephone to get it reset after it was locked.

Complete Fraud
No official organization government or otherwise will ever request
you send them anything.

The Insurance Agency, I manage, has been attached by every form of
hacker including phone calls.

My advise, always call the business or government entity yourself to
confirm.

These attacks are kind of spiraling out of control.
