Phone Scammers Impersonating CISA Employees

Impersonation scams are on the rise and often use the names and titles of government employees. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is aware of recent impersonation scammers claiming to represent the agency. As a reminder, although CISA staff will occasionally contact organizations with important notifications, CISA staff will never contact you with a request to wire money, cash, cryptocurrency, or use gift cards and will never instruct you to keep the discussion secret.

If you suspect you are a target of an impersonation scammer claiming to be a CISA employee: 
•    Do not pay the caller.
•    Take note of the phone number calling you.
•    Hang up immediately.
•    Validate the contact by calling CISA at (844) SAY-CISA (844-729-2472) or report it to law enforcement.
