Maui county warns public of Section 8 housing voucher scam


KAHULUI, Hawaii — The Maui County Department of Housing and Human Concerns warns about a new scam claiming to assist individuals with Section 8 housing vouchers.

According to county officials, the scam is being posted by “Section 8 Housing” on social media platforms. It claims that Section 8 will “open the waitlist by accepting applications from May 22 to June 15” and that families can use vouchers to purchase a home and receive monthly assistance to meet homeownership costs. It also claims applications will be reviewed in two weeks with no year-long waitlists.

Officials encourage the public to flag and report the scam to social media platforms hosting the information.
