Health and Human Services Grant Scam

Published:  February 19, 2018

We have received reports that individuals have been contacted by an individual representing that he is an officer with Health & Human Services that they have received a grant from Health & Human Services and they must first pay a fee with a gift card to receive the grant. This is a scam.

Sonoma County Human Services does not charge a fee for any application or access to benefits. If you have questions about benefits, contact (707) 565-5800.

Always question anyone who says that you are required to pay a fee to receive a benefit, prize or other type of award especially if you are told to pay with some form of a gift card or money gram—it is generally a scam.
