RCVS warns of scam phone calls
The RCVS has warned veterinary practices of a series of scam phone calls involving the College database.
In a statement, the RCVS said they have been informed of a number of calls to veterinary practices in the past few weeks from someone calling themselves Lauren.
The caller claims that they work for the RCVS, that there has been a loss of data at the College and they need the practice’s information to re-build the database.
“Please note this is false and not a genuine call,” the RCVS said. “We would ask that any practices that receive this call inform us at the earliest opportunity.
“The College would never ask for practice, personal or other details (including bank details) over the phone and our information is securely backed to prevent any data loss.”
Practices that receive a call of this nature are urged to contact Corrie McCann, RCVS director of operations, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7202 0724.
