Fraudulent phone calls

We have also been made aware that some licensees have received fraudulent communications from individuals claiming to be from our licensing board, or another agency, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The communications, often by phone, may threaten arrest or license suspension, demand personal information, or require the payment of fines. Please note: ALL INITIAL BOARD DISCIPLINE CORRESPONDENCE IS SENT VIA CERTIFIED MAIL AND/OR YOUR NURSE PORTAL.

Phone calls may “spoof” our phone number and appear to be from our number;

If you need to verify the identity of a WV RN Board investigator, call (304) 744-0900 or email the discipline department through your Nurse Portal;

The Board will never demand that you provide personal information, such as social security number, date of birth, bank or credit card account numbers over the phone;

These type of licensing scams are a problem nationwide.

The Federal Trade Commission accepts reports about “Imposter Scams” through the FTC Complaint Assistant, or at 1-877-382-4357. These reports are used to aid ongoing investigations.

The Drug Enforcement Administration also has warned of imposters posing as DEA agents. Information and reporting of these scams can be found at this DEA website:
