    Protect Yourself from EBT Scams

    Phone scams to steal information about EBT cards have been growing this year. In April, EBT scams using USPS mail were identified. 

    Don't give anyone your EBT PIN number. No real county worker would ask for your EBT card PIN number.

    If you receive false EBT phone calls, text messages, emails, USPS mail, in-person or online phishing email, report it to the county program you work with, such as Economic Assistance or Employment & Training. The Human Services Department will reports these fraud attempts to its own Special Investigations Unit and to the California Department of Social Services fraud team. Help stop fraud by reporting these scams.
