I received a call from the DEA (William Wright) and told me I had purchased Vicodin overseas and a warrant was about to be issued to the state of California. I informed him, I was indeed a criminal defense attorney, and before I could continue, he hung up!
Thanks for this site! People are desperate these days ... beware!!!

Re:202 241 5693 (similar number)



I received a call from a man who identified himself as Federal Special Agent William Wright. He explained he was a DEA officer and I had ordered prescription pills from over seas. He explained that I would be facing federal charges and there was a warrant for my arrest. He explained that I could pay a fine of $1850 and send it to the Dominican Republic. If I did this I would avoid jail time. He informed me I could be incarcerated for up to 12 months The caller was identified as a Federal DEA officer

This happened to me yesterday morning. I was nervous at first because he came across very "official," but towards the end of the call I was told my federal charges would go bye-bye by wiring $1850.00 to a guy in the Dominican by the name of Tony Gomez Maldonado... say what?? I was told I was running very short on time because he was in the process of filing my case in federal court, and once those charges were filed, federal agents would be detaining me same day. I went along with it at first because I was curious if there would be a follow up call. Well, Special Agent Super Douche, did not disappoint. He called 90 minutes later and left a message indicating he filed my charges and that DEA agents would be at my house and place of work by 12:30 p.m.. That time has come and gone and I'm not in an orange onesie. Thank God! I look terrible in orange... seriously, absolutely terrible!

I received a call from a man who identified himself as Federal Special Agent William Wright. He explained he was a DEA officer and I had ordered prescription pills from over seas. He also said that I was going to be arrested today!! I called the number back and asked to speak to the officer in charge, when he got on the phone I called him out on his scam!!!! They just hung up, i called back again and got their answering machine. They are a bunch of scammers!! Oh yeah also called the REAL DEA office and told them about the phone call, they said this has been going on for years and to go to this site to file a complaint...https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/esor/

Same exact story as the rest. Said I was going to jail within 2 hrs $1850 was the amount I was to pay to avoid anything further or jailtime. After I asked for some confirmation on his identity he got angry and said some stuff and hung up.

Same as everyone else. William Wright called saying a warrant would be issued if I did not pay "fine". I told him I would send the money to the local DEA office with all of his contact info. Then he hung up.

Caller type: Unknown

I was just contacted and told that I would have a warrant issued if I didn't go to my local Money Gram location, which he knew where it was, and deposited $1850. I was to fill out the Personal Money Gram to Randy Olivo Federal Judge in the Dominican Republic. 1600 Fort Washington Ave. Santo Domingo, DR. Once this was done, I would have to fax my receipt to Agent Wright and he would stop the issuance of my warrant. This was @ 10:44 am and I had until 11:45 am or he was contacting my locat DA. Before I hung up I asked for my total again, he pulled my file again and now the total is $1950. I'm a little naive, obviously because he was able to convice me. He knew so much of my personal information that it is scary! Luckily I had enough sense to walk my extremely upset self to my boss' office and he was able to calm me down enough to shed some light on this scam. I'm not a stupid person or normally naive but, this guy was really good!!!!! He totally had me convinced. At this point I was thinking that this was the end of this but, at 12:27 pm I received another VM from Special Agent William Wright that says a warrant has now been issued. PLEASE BE AWARE.

Called today for the second time stating my husband was going to be arrested for purchasing drugs thru the mail from over seas. We do receive medication thru the mail from our regular insurance company. When I told Agent Wright he was a scam the chicken hung up on me! What a Fraudster---Wonder how he got our name and number??

Same call, except never got to the point where he was asking for me for money. The call disconnected, he rang me right back and was angry that I had hung up on him. I advised I thought the call was a prank and asked for his information again, which he boldly replayed his story. He said a warrant was being issued through the local police department and they would be at my house @ 230pm.

I received the same type of call. Special Agent William Wright from the USDA in Washington DC. Claiming I had ordered phentermine over the internet and it was delivered from over seas in 2007 and 2008. I had Federal charges pending against me and they would be knocking on my door tonight to take me into custody. I would then be transferred to a federal holding where I would stay a minimum of 15-30 days. My husband called him back and Special Agent William Wright shared that he had my cc#, phone and address and could pay a fine for a lesser charge. We called the local police!

same story as above on Dec. 26. Warrant out for my arrest and I would have up to 12 months in prison. But.... I could send 1850 wire transfer dominican republic to drop the charges. I could also just go and turn myself in at the local police station. That certainly would have messed up my new years eve plans. Glad I called my husband and he assured me it was a scam. I so hope no one sends them the money.

When I put my husband on the phone, he told us to go to our local police and call him from there and then hung up. Before he hung up, my husband asked for his badge number and he gave the number CE19760. He also referenced our local police and said they would be out either tonight or tomorrow morning to issue a warrant for my arrest. I also would be escorted to a local prison or one nearby. Again, very scary, he had so much personal information about me. He also told me to go to Western Union to pay the fine. That is when I realized this is not right. I googled the phone number and his name and found all these complaints. How can we stop this???? From all the complaints, this has been going on too long, and how much money has him and his partner scammed????

Agent William Wright called stating he had a warrant ready to process on my husband for prescription drugs. Needless to say he is not aware my husband has been in law enforcement for 20 years now. You chose poorly. Wright's new number is 786-397-6285.

"Special Agent" called me yesterday saying that I needed to contact him ASAP because a warrant was to be issued for my arrest soon. I now know that this is a scam. Question: If this WAS the DEA, why would they call and tell me a warrant was to be issued? Why not just come and arrest me? This is a SCAM.

I too received a call from William Wright while I was at work this morning telling me that I had one hour to send the money via Money Gram to Tony Gomez. I was told it had to be paid in cash and don't tell anyone around me what was going on. I did tell a co-worker and she insisted I let her look it up! IT IS A SCAM!!! We called The DEA and was told they get hundreds of calls a day about "Special Agent Wright" SCAM!!!!! My husband called him and he had nerve to tell him is wasn't a scam and I was going to be arrested. My husband then told him he already reported it to the NY Attorney General and SCAM!!! Tell everyone you know about this!!

These a-holes have been trying to contact me for a year and a half. I spoke with them and received the same bs as noted in all of the post on this thread. I have a friend that works for the FBI and I forwarded the information to him including the voice message left me advising me of my arrest and incarceration ( can you believe it right ...pretty dam bold)
My acquaintance was going to forward to the correct authorities in charge of fraud. . He also made the comment if they were going to arrest you they wouldn't call and make an appointment.

I also received a call yesterday from a man who identified himself as Federal Special Agent William Wright. He explained to me that he was a DEA officer and I ordered prescription pills from over seas. He also said that a warrant was going to be issued within 2 hours if I didn't take care of the matter. I had an option. If I paid $1850, I wouldn't go to jail. I told him that I would have my husband call him back right away. My husband called him and told him we were calling our attorney. She informed us that this is a SCAM!!! ATTENTION EVERYONE!!!! THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!

I received a call from a man who identified himself as Federal Special Agent William Wright. He explained he was a DEA officer and I had ordered prescription pills from over seas. Mind you I have received prescriptions through the mail but they were valid prescriptions. He explained that I would be facing federal charges and there was a warrant for my arrest. He explained that I could pay a fine of $1850 and send it to the Dominican Republic at 1600 George Washington Ave. I should address the money gram to Julio Santana. If I did this I would avoid jail time. He informed me I could be incarcerated for up to 12 months and I had until three o'clock this after to wire the money or an officer would be at my home to arrest me. I looked this up and I seen many others have been presented with the same scam. It is scary to think these people have my address and phone number.

Today I received a call from DEA agent William Wright informing me that a warrant for my arrest was being issued because I had purchased prescription medication online which had entered the country illegally. Luckily, a friend googled the phone number and found this site. I will believe that this is a scam and will wait until the police knock on my door to call my lawyer. Thanks for your posts!
