CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The United States Department of Agriculture is warning WV Citizens of EBT card scams.

A social media post from the state DHHR warns EBT users to protect their benefits by” resetting the PIN monthly prior to receiving your SNAP benefit, keeping your PIN secret, checking your EBT account regularly for unauthorized charges, and never providing your EBT card number or PIN by phone or text.”

The post continues, “If you suspect fraudulent use of your EBT card, contact your DHHR county office.”
