Member Alert: Phone Scam Alleging FSA/USDA Connections
It has been brought to the attention of USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) 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 that 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.
Please 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.
