SNAP FRAUD ALERT TO RESIDENTS OF PASSAIC COUNTY

The County of Passaic and the Hudson County Division of Family Services is urging residents to beware of any solicitation made by any other agency/company/consulting group besides the Passaic County Division of Family Services, including, but not limited to FSP Consulting. The Hudson County Division of Family Service received a complaint from a Hudson County resident and SNAP recipient against FSP Consulting, alleging that the resident was solicited by said company, and was asked to provide confidential information, including bank account numbers, social security numbers, and other identifiers. A similar incident took place in Passaic County.

REMINDER TO RESIDENTS that the Passaic County Board of Social Services is the only agency a resident is to contact regarding SNAP benefits. If residents receive a phone call or correspondence from anyone other than the Division of Family Services, residents are not to give out any information.
