USDA Farm Service Agency
The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently learned that a phone scam is being perpetrated on FSA customers.
The caller, who identifies themselves as a Farm Loan Services representative from Washington, D.C., states that FSA “owes” the person disaster assistance funds and asks for checking account information or a credit card number, alleging that funds will be credited to these accounts.
For those who may receive a similar phone call, do not, under any circumstances, provide personal or financial information to the caller. Please share this alert with family, freinds and neighbors.
For questions or comments, contact a local FSA office.
