    Beware of DEA Extortion Scheme
    [​IMG] Week of August 03, 2015
    The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is warning the general public about criminals posing as DEA (or other law enforcement) agents, who are part of an international money-laundering scheme. The criminals call the victims and identify themselves as DEA or other agents. The impersonators inform their victims that purchasing drugs over the Internet or by telephone is illegal and instruct their victims to pay the fine via wire transfer to a designated location. Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be a DEA special agent or other law enforcement official seeking money should refuse the demand and report the threat at the DEA Office of Division Control website — click the 'extortion scam online reporting' link.
