In recent days NCCPA has been informed of inquiries from licensees of state medical boards regarding fraudulent text messages and spoof phone calls in which license numbers and/or other personally identifying information is requested.
While we believe this to be isolated activity, it is imperative that you be reminded that NCCPA does not text PAs or PA students or call with requests for personally identifying information or payment information in any circumstance. If you receive this type of call:
1. Do not give out any personal information
2. Hang up or ask for information to call the caller back
3. Report the information to your local authorities
If you receive any questionable communication (via text, phone or otherwise) purporting to be from NCCPA please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-417-8100.
