    I was asked to call this number regarding ebt. I don't have an ebt card, and havent for over a decade.

    I received a text from 866 261 4872 that I need to call this number in regards with emergency alert for my brothers EBT food card

    EBT never sent me a text

    They usually call my number if there’s a fraudulent transaction and they will automatically block the card

    Please do not call or reply to the text instead block it on your phone

    It’s a scam

    Received this on my cell phone,generally use my cell phone for contacting family and also as my main camera. This msg was alert re: Food Debit Card. The word "Department" was misspelled, Departement. I am 79, and feel bad for people who respond to these calls. Wish there was a way to stop them. Send them to another planet and let them scam each other!

      Just got the same message, seeing how I don't tie my ebt to my cell # I figured it was a scam. This page was the first hit when I entered the above number.

      Scammers are stupid.

    Got this piece of s**t today. Thanks for the advice and I'm VERY glad I didn't call these pakhtash back.

    where the department word is misspelled, and the #-#-# is my cell (10 Arabic digits)

    Messing with the electrical field instead of just letting the field operate naturally (in our heads?) is seen as some as some kind of evil.

    Sure, we could still be living in caves but that lack of interest/curiosity won't get us off this rock before our friend goes Red-Giant.

    And on the other-hand neither will this mangled E-field combined with hate.

    I could just keep rambling on - BUT I NEED MY MTV!
