Both agencies have recently received reports from Iowans of text messages that indicate their EBT cards are locked. The message includes a phone number to call for assistance. These messages are not sent by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Iowans are warned to never share their personal information, EBT card number or PIN by text message.

Benefits lost due to fraudulent or scam activity cannot be replaced. If you are the victim of an EBT scam, you should file a report with your local law enforcement agency.

If you received a spam text message regarding a locked EBT card, please file a report with the Federal Trade Commission.
