LARA Issues Another Warning About Imposter Scams

LARA, in conjunction with the Michigan AG’s Office, has issued another warning to professional license holders in Michigan that scam artists, impersonating LARA or other government officials, continue to reach out to license holders in an attempt to convince them to pay money in order to keep their license.   LARA’s Director, Marlon Brown, has advised:  “No one from LARA will ever reach out to you with a threat to suspend your license unless you pay them money.”

If you are contacted by LARA, a government official, or someone representing themselves as a government official regarding an alleged action against your professional license, please reach out to Dick Hillary or any member of Miller Johnson’s Health Care Professional Licensing, Regulatory Compliance and Accreditation Practice Group.  We can assist you in determining whether the contact is legitimate and, if it is, counsel you on your response.
