HUD Update: Fair Housing Discrimination Hotline Scam

Please be advised of the following message from HUD:

Fair Housing Discrimination Hotline Scam

It has come to our attention that the Housing Discrimination Hotline has been getting calls from the public about a group using a scam that shows them calling from 1-800-669-9777 (the Discrimination Hotline). HUD has received over 30 calls from the public at this time. One scam tells the person to send $300 to them and that HUD will send them back $9000.  If you receive a phone call related to this from the public, or if you receive such a message on the answering machine, you have been contacted fraudulently. Please report this to the FCC https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id.

Thank you for your assistance with this. We appreciate your help in protecting the public from fraud.
