The Department of Defense Hotline

FRAUD ALERT: DoD OIG has become aware that HOTLINE

telephone numbers at other Federal IG offices are

being used as part of a telephone spoofing scam.

In those spoofing scams, callers represent themselves as Hotline employees and can alter the appearance of the caller ID to make it seem as if the call is coming from the Hotline number.

The Department of Defense, OIG is taking every precaution to prevent the DoD OIG Hotline telephone number from being spoofed in a similar scam.


  • Do NOT provide any personal information to unknown callers.
  • Do NOT verify your name or any other personal information to unknown callers.
  • If you receive a call from someone identified as a member of the DoD OIG Hotline, ask for their name and hang up. Immediately call the DoD OIG Hotline at 800-424-9098 to verify the call was official.
