HUD has released the following statement:
“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
Thank you for your assistance with this.
HUD appreciates your help in protecting the public from fraud.
HUD hopes that you will want to continue receiving information from HUD.
