The USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) reports that a phone scam is being perpetrated on FSA customers.
The caller, who identifies themselves as a Farm Loan Services representative out of Washington, D.C., states that FSA “owes” you disaster assistance funds and proceeds to request your checking account information or requests a credit card number alleging funds will be credited to these accounts.
Should you receive a similar call, do not, under any circumstances, provide personal or financial information to the caller.
USDA asks that you share this alert with family, friends, and neighbors. For more information, contact your local FSA office.
