    [Scammer alert]
    (2024-02-12) South Carolina State Board of Dentistry
    The South Carolina Board of Dentistry is warning licensees that scam artists have begun posing as law enforcement officers, as well as U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and medical board staff calling dental board licensees as part of an extortion scheme. Scammers posing as law enforcement or as DEA agents may tell victims their license is suspended for illegal drug trafficking and the suspension means they will not be able to practice. Please note, law enforcement officers, DEA agents and dental board staff will never contact physicians by telephone to demand money or any other form of payment.
