Fraud Calls Targeting the Medical Sector in Wisconsin, Nationwide

Since December 2020 the Wisconsin Statewide Intelligence Center has received four reports of medical providers in Wisconsin receiving fraudulent phone calls claiming to originate with the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS), and / or the Wisconsin Nurses Association (WNA). Fortunately, in each case the call recipients were skeptical of the calls, eventually hung up, and suffered no financial loss because of the scam. None of the calls reported to WSIC were legitimate outreach from either DSPS or WNAii,iii. A recent FBI Liaison Information Report details similar activity occurring nationwide.
