DSS Warns Of CDBG Fraud Activity

The Missouri Department of Social Service is warning Missourians to be alert for new fraud activity involving Community Services Block Grant funds. There are reports from individuals that messages are being reported of social media profiles impersonating their friends and family asking for a $500 gift card in exchange for a large sum of money through Community Services Block Grant funds.

Acting Director Robert Knodell says the Department of Social Services will not email, text, call, or send a message on social media to ask for money or gift cards in exchange for more money.

If you suspect you have received a fraudulent text, call, email, or message on social media, do not respond. Instead, report it immediately to the Welfare Investigations Unit online
