sometimes located on the side of legitimate articles, offering
assistance for filling out SNAP applications.
The links will take you to another website where you may be
asked to provide personal information, including credit card
information. Do NOT provide this information. It can be
used to allow other individuals to make unauthorized purchases
on your credit card, or gain access to your bank accounts.

assistance with a corresponding link, donít click on it. Never
provide any personal information, including credit card
information on an unsecure Web Site. SNAP employees or service
providers will never ask you for credit card information or for
anything not on your State Agency application.

choose to file a police report. For more information on identity
