Cosmetology Phone Scam

The Ohio State Board of Cosmetology

(“Board”) has recently received information

about telephone scams targeting our licensees.

According to the reported information, there

have been two forms of scams, both directed

toward salons. In one, the caller says that they

are calling from the Board about an unpaid fine,

and they demand immediate payment over

the phone. While certain unpaid fines may be

referred to the Ohio Attorney General for col-

lections, and the collection efforts may involve

calls, Employees of the Board will never call and

demand fine payments over the phone.

In the second version, the caller claims to be

an inspector from the Board and says that they

are coming to complete an inspection at the

salon. The caller then informs the salon that

they need to have money available to pay for

the inspection. The Ohio State Board of Cosme-

tology does not charge salons for inspections,

and Board inspectors will never ask a salon for

money.

If you receive a call like the ones noted above,

or any other call from someone claiming to be

from the Board and asking for money, please

hang up and notify the Board.
