The Florida Department of Health (Department), Division of Medical Quality Assurance, is warning Florida health care practitioners about a fraudulent email and phishing attempt sent to Florida health care practitioners.
Scammers are posing as the Department and offering to provide licensees with “important information” concerning a temporary change to your license status. This email did not originate from the Department.
Health care practitioners will never receive unsolicited calls or emails from the Department where personal information is requested, payments are demanded, or threats against your license are made. We want to protect our health care practitioners from fraud schemes. If you receive an email that looks suspicious, do not click on any links or attachments, or provide any personal information.
Report the scam email by using your favorite internet browser to search for “Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)” and use the FBI webpage to provide information regarding the fraudulent email.
If you have any questions, please contact our customer contact center at (850) 488-0595.
