There's this other scam people should be aware of. It's the fake DEA scam call. Based on the complaints posted at CALLERCENTER, this involves impersonating a police officer and the scammers call victims who may have previously purchased drugs over the internet and identify themselves as DEA agents. The scammers then inform their victims that buying drugs over the internet is illegal and that legal action will be taken against them unless they pay a fine. In most cases, the scammers instruct their victims to pay the "fine" via wire transfer. If the victims refuse to send money, the scammers often threaten to arrest them or search their property.
