Board of Pharmacy Warns of Spam Calls
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 wholesale distributor. The callers state that the Board needs this information to merge files and notify pharmacies of recalls.
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.
