The Iowa Board of Pharmacy (Board) has received several notifications from Iowa pharmacies regarding recent phishing scams. The callers have spoofed legitimate Board of Pharmacy phone numbers and requested the name of the pharmacy's diabetic test strip supplier. Additionally calls have been received that identify themselves as the wholesale distributor requesting verification of account information.
The Board urges its licensees and registrants to be cautious of suspicious communications from individuals who may be posing as employees of the Board.
If licensees receive suspicious calls, they should hang up and directly call the Board office or assigned compliance officer to verify the authenticity of the call.
