Attention Nurses: Department of Consumer Affairs Fraud Scam Alert

Scam AlertAttention Nurses: Department of Consumer Affairs Fraud Scam Alert

An attempted fraud scheme is currently targeting licensees of the Department of Consumer Affair’s boards and bureaus, including the Board of Registered Nursing and the Board of Vocational Nurses. Scam artists pretending to be DCA/board/bureau staff members or investigators are notifying licensees that they are under investigation, that their license may be suspended, or that an arrest warrant has been issued in the licensee’s name, and then they will demand money.

In some instances, scam artists identify themselves as other entities including local police, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  The callers may be even be “spoofing” DCA/board/bureau telephone numbers to make the calls appear to be coming from DCA or the board/bureau.

Please know that DCA/board/bureau staff members or investigators will never contact licensees demanding money or payment of any form or personalized information without conducting an official investigation or inquiry. If you receive such a call, please refuse the demand for payment.

Please also consider the following:
