WMC calls alert about scam
January 30, 2020
The Washington Medical Commission (WMC) has been alerted that scam artists are calling clinics, Dr. offices and pharmacies posing as the WMC or medical board. These scam artists have increased the deceptiveness of the tactics by using direct phone numbers to WMC staff.
All practitioners should be skeptical of anyone claiming to be with the WMC making such demands. Be aware the WMC will never call you asking for your DEA number, private information or looking for payment. If you receive a call like this and have questions, contact them at Medical.Commission@wmc.wa.gov.
