The Oregon massage board served me with papers for not having my massage license. But they did this by sending a PI to my private home and entered my home under a false identity. After a 90 minute full session this woman drank tea with me and told me about her grandkids. Then procededed to tell me she was not who she said she was and wanted to see all my credentials, social security, and license. Super violating. I'm requesting a hearing to fight the $2000 fine, but can a PI do this?
While it is underhanded and not being rigorously honest, it does sound like she did her job in attempting proper service which was her goal on behalf of sender. .

Yes they can unfortunately. You would be well served getting your massage therapy license so this doesn't happen against. As part of the sanction, you may want to negotiate to pay for the license instead of the fine. its certainly worth a try.
