From the FSBPT:
First reported in last month's News Brief issue, the FSBPT Board wants to ensure you are aware of scams circulating that target licensees.
According to received reports, the scammers send an email or fax a letter on state board letterhead alleging a licensing issue. The scammers then immediately call the target before they can call the PT board office directly to confirm. Furthermore, the scammers spoof the board office's phone number to trick the licensee into thinking the call is legitimate.
We have received specific scam reports from the Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, and Maryland boards. Please always be vigilant and contact your state board before divulging any information.
