ALERT!!! Social Media, Telephone and Cell Phone Text Scam!

The EBT Cardholder Call Center reports that a comment posted on social media is advising cardholders to call (877) 449-7795 or cardholders are receiving calls or text messages from (213) 600-5667, (442) 284-5456, (978) 230-0875, (626) 590-9019 or (909) 699-3067. These phone numbers are requesting the cardholder to provide their card number and PIN to have their benefits posted right away.

These are SCAMs to obtain cardholder information. These are NOT phone numbers associated with California EBT. It is important for you to protect your identity and case information. DPSS will never ask for your personal security PIN.

If you suspect that you are a victim of these SCAMs, call the DPSS Customer Service Call Center at (866) 613-3777 for help right away.
