Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) recipients if you receive a text message on your phone that states, “your FNS case is about to close and to click on a link to keep it open” or “you were chosen to receive food stamps or SNAP”. This is a “SCAM” in order to obtain the FNS recipients’ personal information. Recipients should not reply to the text, delete the text right away.
As a reminder Food and Nutrition Service recipients, should never share social security numbers, bank information, or FNS electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card or PIN number with individuals or organizations that they do not know. If they are not sure about a suspicious request for FNS information please contact DSS at 704-487-0661.
