Scam Advisory for Medical Professionals

Posted May 2, 2024

The Salt Lake City Police Department's Financial Crimes Unit has informed the Utah Division of Professional Licensing (DOPL) about an imposter scam that appears to be targeting professionals working in medical fields.

The scammers allegedly spoof the phone numbers of law enforcement agencies, calling potential victims and claiming to have a warrant out for their arrest. In some cases, the scammers appear to have limited personal information about their potential victims, claiming they've sent or tried to serve a subpoena at a previous or current address. The scammers will then instruct the victim to buy various gift cards from different locations and to provide the scammers with the numbers on the back.

As a reminder, law enforcement will never contact you to collect on a warrant over the phone. If you encounter one of these scams, you can report it to the Federal Trade Commission at reportfraud.ftc.gov.
