Telephone and Cell Phone Text Scam

Beware of a telephone and cell phone text scam that is affecting customers/EBT cardholders! Scammers are identifying themselves as CalWORKs or Social Services and stating that your EBT card has been compromised or closed. The caller/text is then prompting the customer for his/her 16 digit EBT card number and security PIN. The text then prompts you to call a number to reactivate your card.

Here are a few ways to make sure your identity is not compromised:

  • Know who you share information with; 
  • Store and dispose of your personal information securely, especially your Social Security number; 
  • Ask questions before deciding to share your personal information;
  • Maintain appropriate security on your electronic devices.
