ALERT!! Phishing Scam! Phone Scam! Letter Scam!
The MN Board of Chiropractic Examiners (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. If a caller threatens that your license will be taken away unless you "pay now"; do not pay. The Board will never call you to request money. You may find more information in this Press Release from the DEA.
New Information has been reported that these scammers have morphed different Boards' letterhead and even the Executive Director's signature. If you receive a threatening letter from the Board demanding action for which you have not received prior notice, call the Board directly before taking any action demanded in the letter.
