SCAM ALERT! Therapists please be aware:
One of your OT colleagues was contacted by someone claiming that he was an investigator from the Medical Board and that she was under investigation. He claimed her license was about to be revoked within 30 minutes for “suspicious activity related to illegal drug trafficking.“ The number that appeared on her caller ID was the actual Medical Board number, and the caller identified himself as the Board investigator. He later phoned her again, leaving a message with a number to call him back.
Scammers are likely after your personal information. If this happens to you, contact the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration): https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/pubs/pressreleases/extortion_scam.htm.
