SCAM ALERT - Licensing Boards Being Spoofed

Monday, August 17, 2020

Some American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) member licensing boards are reporting that their licensees are receiving phone calls from people claiming to be staff from the licensing board or law enforcement in an attempt to obtain sensitive license or personal information. The callers will often falsely claim that the licensee is under investigation or that their license is in danger of being suspended. The phone numbers that appear on the caller ID can sometimes appear authentic. This is a common fraud technique known as spoofing.

If you are a licensee that receives a suspicious phone call, please do not share any sensitive information over the phone and contact the Arizona state Veterinary Medical Examining Board (licensing board) directly right away.
