Scam

Scam Alert

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 PT Boards, including California.

Licensees have reported receiving phone calls to their personal phones or place of business.  In some cases the scammers are "spoofing" the OBPT phone number, which makes calls appear as though they are coming from the OBPT.

The licensee is alerted of an “investigation” by the Board and/or the FBI.  In many cases the licensee is threatened with license suspension due to issues related to identity theft and drug trafficking.

If you do receive a call of this nature, hang up and contact the Oregon Board of Physical Therapy directly at (971) 673-0204 to inquire if there’s a valid, official reason for the call.
