Be Aware of Phone Scams
If you are getting health care benefits, DHS will not call you seeking personal or financial information. If you are getting FoodShare benefits, your agency will call you to complete a FoodShare interview and may ask you to verify certain information to ensure they are talking with the correct person. If you are unsure of who you are talking to, hang up, and call your agency or Member Services at 1-800-362-3002.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, advises consumers not to give out personal or financial information to people you do not know through phone calls, emails, or knocks on your door. Scam artists want your information to commit identity theft, charge your existing credit cards, debit your checking account, open a new credit card, checking, or savings account, write fraudulent checks, or take out loans in your name.
