Be Advised: Extortion Scam Targeting DEA Registrants

1 Nov 2018 10:14 AM | Babette Grey (Administrator)

DEA is aware that registrants are receiving telephone calls and emails by criminals identifying themselves as DEA employees or other law enforcement personnel.  The criminals have masked their telephone number on caller id by showing the DEA Registration Support 800 number.  Please be aware that a DEA employee would not contact a registrant and demand money or threaten to suspend a registrant's DEA registration.  

If you are contacted by a person purporting to work for DEA and seeking money or threatening to suspend your DEA registration, submit the information through "Extortion Scam Online Reporting" posted on the DEA Diversion Control Division's website, www.DEADiversion.usdoj.gov.
