Please read this important message from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation warning of scam alert.
We want to warn you that there are scams targeting licensees by claiming to be a staff member at IDFPR or a member of law enforcement. The scammer calls the licensee and claims their license will be suspended or criminal charges will be filed unless a payment is made immediately. They may also ask for your social security number and make their phone number look like it’s from IDFPR.
IDFPR and law enforcement will never contact a licensee in this manner. Never give your credit card number or personal identification information over the phone if you did not initiate the call. Be wary of callers who try to intimidate you into “acting immediately.” To verify if a call is from IDFPR, please contact us at 847-294-4900.
