    I received a test msg to call this phone number. I did not call it as I figured it was a scam.

  • February 14, 2022 at 1:23 AM by an anonymous user from: Henderson, Nevada, United States

    I rec’d the EBT scam number text on my phone Friday Feb 11, 2022 @ 4:58pm. I was going to call my local office Monday instead of responding but decided to google it first. Glad I did. However, I figured something wasn’t right. Normally, a letter is sent. When does Snap ever text? Becareful out there…a lot of scammers.

    ebt78558207@fws.gov

    Retired from California. Living in Italy. Text came on my US phone. Scared the bejeezus out of me until I googled "fws" (US Fish and Wildlife Service?)(WTF?)

    I also googled "ebt". That's for sending foodstamp benefits. I'm trying to imagine being on foodstamps and getting a text and seeing the "gov" part and not having an internet service provider to be able to Google "fws". As if they don't have enough stress in their lives.

    I hope these scammer guys die painful deaths.

    Now I gotta go ask my husband if he's ever seen a wildlife. We like to eat fish.

    Thanks for the info everyone.

  • February 12, 2022 at 6:01 PM by an anonymous user from: Chaffee County, Buena Vista, Colorado, United States

    I also received this text. Denver, CO. FYI - I also want to mention that I went to block the number from my phone and blocking was an option. So this scammer is sending this text in a format that does not allow blocking the number. I don't know how that potentially leaves my phone open to receiving more texts from this scammer. Perhaps one of you knows more about this than I do? I have never not been able to block a number. I will also call my telephone service for suggestions.
