The Board does not discuss or request any confidential matters over the phone. Due to the Minnesota Data Practices Act, all confidential communications with the Board are handled through written correspondence. Be wary of phone calls demanding confidential information such as Social Security numbers or threatening legal or criminal action against you. Scammers are able to mimic known phone numbers in your caller ID making it appear that the Board is calling you. You are encouraged to hang up and contact the Board directly if you receive a suspicious call.
