TMA received a tip from a trusted source that there might be a scam operation targeting Tennessee physicians, advance practice registered nurses, and other health care professionals.
An individual claiming to be a U.S. Marshal is calling health care professional offices about a case or investigation. The name provided is of a real Marshal but not a Marshal stationed in Nashville. TMA strongly recommends that practice settings inform their health care professionals about this possible scam in case they are called.
If your practice or a health care professional is contacted by this individual, recipients should:
Not give out any information to the caller.
Note the caller’s name and telephone number.
Immediately report the contact to the U.S. Marshals Service, Middle District of Tennessee, 615-736-5417.
There is no need to report the encounter to TMA.
