HOUSTON – The Federal Emergency Management Agency said on social media Thursday that a false phone number is being used to scam people seeking help amid the winter weather disaster in Texas.

FEMA said the best information will come from local officials and the Texas Division of Emergency Management.

Here’s an image some have seen circulating on social media. KPRC 2 has looked into this number and learned the number is to the IT department of FEMA, and helps people reset log in information. It is not a claims department.

The image below is of the FEMA website. No links for payment or claim information related to this Texas disaster has been updated.
