(WKBN) – The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services is warning clients about a potential scam.
Some SNAP card recipients have been connected to a fraudulent customer service number.
Some were asked to give a credit card number for shipping fees for a new SNAP card.
Others were told they won a cruise or $100 gift card but needed to give personal information to claim the prize.
Jobs and Family Services never charges a client or asks for credit card numbers for a new SNAP card.
If you have questions or need help with your SNAP account, including getting a replacement card, call 1-866-386-3071.
