The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) recently confirmed the HHS OIG Hotline telephone number is being used as part of a telephone spoofing scam targeting individuals nationwide. During the calls, scammers represent themselves as HHS OIG Hotline employees and alter the appearance of caller ID to make it appear as if they have called from the Hotline phone number, 1-800-HHS-TIPS (1-800-447-8477).
The scammers attempt to collect personal information during the phone call, which is then used to obtain funds from the victim’s bank account or for other fraudulent activity.
Be vigilant with all phone calls to never disclose personal information to unknown individuals, including social security number, date of birth, credit or debit card information, driver’s license number, bank account information, or mother’s maiden name. In addition to supplying personal information, callers may ask you to verify personal information – this information should not be verified.
If you have experienced a suspicious call from the Department of Health and Human Services, they ask you to report the information by calling 1-800-HHS-TIPS (1-800-447-8477), by emailing email@example.com, or by contacting the Federal Trade Commission 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). Include details on the approximate date and time you received the call and any other details you recall from the conversation.
