SCAM ALERT

The Bureau has been made aware of scam artists who may target licensees. If you get a call, e-mail, text or other communication from an individual claiming to represent the Bureau of Occupational Licenses or the Board, here is some information to help you identify whether it is a scam:

The Boards and the Bureau WILL NOT:

• Ask for personal information that does not relate to your license renewal (such as your credit card number or bank account number)
• Demand immediate payment on fines that are not yet due
• Ask for or accept prepaid cards such as Green Dot MoneyPak
• Offer to alter a disciplinary order that has already been entered by the Board
• Ask for or take payments over the phone

The Boards and the Bureau WILL:

• Send renewal notices in the mail
• Take payments on the official website at www.ibol.idaho.gov
• Send inspectors who have a State of Idaho photo ID to establishments

If you ever question whether a communication you received is from the Board or the Bureau, do not provide personal information or payment.  Instead, call the Bureau at (208) 334-3233 for assistance.


NOTE:  ON OR AFTER JULY 1, 2016, IT IS UNLAWFUL TO PRACTICE GENETIC COUNSELING WITHOUT A VALID STATE LICENSE.
