DHS Reports a SNAP Phishing Scam

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) reports some consumers may be receiving phishing scam texts with claims of approval for $1,000 in benefits requiring recipients to click on a link. DHS does not send messages from 1-833-648-1964 asking for details about benefits, requests for personal information, or links to unofficial sites. DHS issued a warning to consumers that if they receive unsolicited or random calls or text messages, it is most likely a scam. As a reminder, consumers should not respond and delete the message, so they do not get caught in identity theft.
