ALERT: POSSIBLE FRAUD ACTIVITY
If you receive an automated telephone call or from someone identifying themselves as being with the State Disbursement Unit and they are requesting you to call 1-800-901-3212, provide your Electronic Payment Card number or any other personal information, do not return this call. It is a phishing scam. You should never provide personal information in response to such phone calls. While it is sometimes necessary to contact child support customers, the Department of Child Support Services never asks for confidential information on an automated telephone call. To verify the authenticity of a call, please call 1-866-901-3212 to speak to a child support representative.
