TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida Department of Children and Families is warning citizens to never give confidential personal or public assistance information to others.

DCF has gotten several reports this week of websites offering to help people apply for public benefits, then asking for financial and credit card information.

To apply for public assistance, including Medicaid, cash or food assistance, in Florida, the only legitimate site is MyFlorida.com. To check your eligibility, click here.

If you believe you've been a victim, visit this Federal Trade Commission website.
