WARNING:
Callers Posing as Law Enforcement

The State of Alaska DCCED Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing is warning the public and professional licensees about criminals posing as Professional Board investigators or other law enforcement personnel as part as an scheme to defraud professional licensees. The licensees targeted in this scheme are those who hold a healthcare license and a DEA registration.

The criminals will call the victims (who in most cases are professional licensees in the State of Alaska), and advise them that their professional license is suspended because they are suspected of drug trafficking on the Texas-Mexico Border or some other location. They will further inform the licensee’s that they are the main suspect of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) drug trafficking investigation. The licensee’s professional license number and DEA registration number will be verified by the criminal asking the victim a series of questions. Impersonators will generally threaten the victim with arrest and to serve time in jail if they do not cooperate with the “investigation” and agree to pay a fine or bond.

The State of Alaska DCCED/CBPL Investigations unit will never call a member of the public or a licensee demanding money. Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be a State of Alaska Professional Licensing Board Investigator or other law enforcement official seeking money should refuse the demand and report the contact to the FBI, DEA, their local law enforcement agency or contact the Division Investigations Unit at 907-269-8124 or email investigations@alaska.gov.
