Mission Statement The mission of the Wyoming State Board of Pharmacy is to promote and protect the health and safety of the public by regulating the practice of pharmacy.
The Board office has received reports that pharmacists are receiving calls that appear to come from the Board office’s main phone number and that the caller identifies them self as an agent with the Board of Pharmacy. The caller is able to confirm some of the pharmacist’s information such as their license number, NPI number, and the pharmacy they work at.
In some calls, the caller accuses the pharmacist of having committed a violation, that their license may be suspended or revoked, and that the pharmacist will be arrested if they do not answer the caller’s questions. Some calls, the caller alleges that the pharmacist was involved in prescription drug trafficking. Some pharmacists have reported that the caller becomes aggressive and demanding, threatening to have the FBI come and arrest the pharmacist if they do not comply.
The Wyoming State Board of Pharmacy will not contact and interact with you in this manner.
The Federal Trade Commission has some useful consumer information for how to recognize and avoid phishing scams. This can be accessed online at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-recognize-and-avoid-phishing-scams.
If you receive such a phone call, please call and report it to the Federal Communication Commission at 888-225-5322.
