The Oregon Board of Physical Therapy has been notified of a scam targeting our licensees. The scam has also been reported by licensees of other State Physical Therapy Boards, including California.
Licensees have reported receiving phone calls "spoofing" the OBPT phone number, which makes calls appear as though they are coming from us.
The licensee is threatened with an investigation by the Board and/or the FBI, and the scammer demands personal information or money to resolve it.
The Oregon Board of Physical Therapy will not contact you to demand money or personalized information. The Board DOES NOT accept payments over the phone. If you believe that you may owe a balance to the Board, you can check your online account through the Licensee Portal for the most up-to-date information.
If you do receive a call of this nature, hang up and contact the Oregon Board of Physical Therapy directly at (971)673-0201 to inquire if there’s a valid, official reason for the call.
