Health Care Professionals BEWARE..... Scammers are stooping pretty low!   Now they are targeting our trusted health care professionals.  Professionals, that highly value what they have worked so hard to obtain, their license and certifications.  

MN Board of Nursing is warning of the scam.  This is probably happening in other states too, so please be aware!

Our state sells off the licensing of nurses.  It is a business pure and simple.  I would imagine other states are doing the same.  

This is why I have over 100k emails in my inbox.

When I first moved to the US and obtained Idaho and Oregon nursing licenses, I immediately received a letter from the Who's Who in Nursing, inviting me to join.

For $75, my name would appear in a lovely leather-bound book with gold edges.  They had to have gotten my information from one of the boards of nursing, because I had only just become licensed.

Since I was already listed in the who's who of telephone service subscribers, I decided to dispense with the $75 accolade.

I wish our government would spend less money on spying on its citizens and war, and more money fighting scammers.

I always get scam calls about everything.  The key is vigilance. Never respond directly to any emails or calls.  Treat everything like it's your bank account.😎
