Mississippi Department of Human Services Warns SNAP Customers of Scam Targeting EBT Card Information


The Mississippi Department of Human Services has issued an urgent alert to all SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) customers, notifying them about a scam that aims to obtain their EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) card information. The department has received multiple reports of clients receiving suspicious phone calls, during which they are asked to disclose their EBT card details and instructed to call a specific number, 1-866-460-0944.

Officials from the Mississippi Department of Human Services emphasize that these calls are fraudulent and not legitimate attempts from their customer service center. This recent scam has prompted a call to action, urging SNAP recipients to exercise caution and refrain from providing any personal or financial information over the phone.
