Fraud Warning to California Licensed Acupuncturists

The Acupuncture Board does not initiate contact with licensees about license status by phone calls, email, text messages, or social media channels to request personal or financial information. This includes requests for access to credit card numbers, banks, pin numbers, social security numbers, or financial accounts. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to work for the Board, but you suspect they are not a Board employee, do NOT provide them any information.  Licensees can then call the Acupuncture Board using the contact information, and attempt to verify the call or report the incident to Board staff at that time.
