URGENT SCAM WARNING

ADDITIONAL URGENT SCAM WARNING FROM THE NEW MEXICO MEDICAL BOARD
Several other scam calls have been reported to the NMMB in February 2020. In these calls, the caller appears to be calling from a NMMB number, 505-476-7220. Although this is our number, these are scam calls; the perpetrators of the scam have successfully cloned the Board’s phone number.In this scam, the male callers asked employers for information about specific physicians. If you or your organization receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Board, please call our offices immediately before giving out physician (or patient) information.

These scam calls are in addition to letters being sent to practitioners asking for patient information. These letters include what appears to be a replica of the Board’s logo.

If you receive a suspicious phone call from the New Mexico Medical Board office, please call Amanda Quintana, PIO/Compliance Manager immediately for handling. Amanda may be reached at 505-476-7230 or via email (preferred) [email protected].
