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 and provide their card number and PIN to have their benefits posted right away.
This is a SCAM to obtain cardholder information. This is NOT a phone number 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 this scam, call the DPSS Customer Service Call Center at
(866) 613-3777 for help right away.
