According to the United States Department of Agriculture-Food and Nutrition Service (USDA-FNS), there are two concurrent scams you should be aware of. One involves the general public and the other involves SNAP/EBT retailers. The scams are using the USDA-FNS Hotline Number as a phone number of origin and making unsolicited calls to the general public and to SNAP/EBT retailers.

Additional information regarding these scams can be found at
USDA Food and Nutrition Service website
and are also included in the
CalFresh-SNAP Telephone Scam Fact Sheet.

If you receive illegitimate calls, you may file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322.
