USDA warns of phone scam referencing FSA
It has been brought to the attention of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency that a phone scam is being perpetrated on FSA customers.
As part of the scam, a caller identifies themselves as a Farm Loan Services representative out of Washington, D.C. and states that FSA “owes” you disaster assistance funds and proceeds to request your checking account information or requests a credit card number alleging that funds will be credited to these accounts.
If you should receive a similar call, USDA advises people NOT to provide any personal or financial information to the caller under any circumstances.
USDA also asks people to share this alert with family, friends and neighbors.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this issue, please feel free to contact your local FSA Office.
