Homeless Services


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

This is a scam.  Customers/Cardholders should not provide any information.  DPSS will never ask you to provide your security PIN.  Customer/Cardholders who have already provided card numbers and PINs to a third party should call the phone on the back of the EBT card to report the EBT card as lost or stolen and change the PIN.
