HUD Issues Warning about Section 8 Scams:

Scammers have long targeted the communities we serve, looking to exploit vulnerabilities for illicit purposes. When this happens, it puts our community members at risk and our programs and operations suffer damage to both reputation and trust.

Most recently, fliers have been circulating on social media advertising assistance with applying for Section 8 funding. The flyer and website ‘www.govassistance[dot]org’ are NOT legitimate. The scam aims to take advantage of Section 8 applicants to obtain their personal information to facilitate fraudulent activity. There are multiple versions of the below advertisement on various websites including Facebook, Instagram, and Tik Tok, typically with slightly changed verbiage and dates.


For HUD updates, please look on the legitimate HUD website at  

Please remember the following best practices for cybersecurity:

• If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

• Never click on a hyperlink if you are unsure if it is legitimate or without verifying with a trusted source.

• Never submit Social Security Numbers, bank / cred card information, or other personal details to a website found through an online search.

Individuals who fall victim to this or similar scams can file a complaint at the Internet Crime Compliant Center (IC3):
