Possible Scam Calls Targeting Caregivers

Several foster parents have reported getting voicemails asking they return the call regarding a “serious DCYF felony.” These calls are not made by DCYF staff and should be considered scam calls.

However, our DCYF Licensing Division is making calls confirming email addresses on file as part of a legitimate project meant to update our foster parent and caregiver distribution list. The project is statewide, and caregivers should not be concerned if they receive a call from DCYF staff asking for their latest email address.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact your assigned licensor or the child’s caseworker.
