CSB warns of phone scam: Callers impersonating federal investigators

Callers ask for confidential information, threaten fines

Posted August 30, 2019

The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) says it has been made aware of a recent wave of scams where callers identify themselves as a federal officer and instruct people to provide confidential information to avoid fines.

The CSB says the calls are fraudulent and that federal agencies do not call or e-mail individuals threatening them to provide personal information or send money.

If you have been contacted by someone claiming to be a representative from the CSB, the Agency asks that you contact public@csb.gov.
