From Environmental Health:
BEWARE: HEALTH INSPECTOR IMPOSTERS
Scam artists posing as health inspectors are targeting restaurants across Los Angeles County trying to gain financial advantage by manipulating food facility owners.
While owners of food businesses, such as a restaurant or market, are normally aware of local agencies and personnel who routinely conduct inspections, food facility owners should be on alert for signs of a scam.

Food facility owners are reminded:
- Under no circumstances will a genuine Environmental Health Specialist (%u201CHealth Inspector%u201D) ask for payments, either for letter grades, other signs, or equipment.
- Scheduling appointments for routine inspections for restaurants and markets is not consistent with the current operating practices of Environmental Health Specialists.
- To require a health inspector or anyone visiting to show appropriate photo identification. If there are any doubts about the identity of any inspector, the facility owner can contact their local Environmental Health Office to confirm that they are a current employee. If the office is unable to confirm the %u201Chealth inspector%u2019s%u201D identity, the facility owner should contact their local law enforcement agency.

The impersonation of a public officer is a criminal offense. Anyone found impersonating a health inspector or any government employee is committing a misdemeanor.

For any questions and/or information regarding fraudulent activity contact Environmental Health at (888) 700-9995.
