LM for me by my name on answering machine. Claimed to be DEA special agent Jamie Bush and asked for call back at 206-497-5936. Said important to call back as had to do with an on-going criminal investigation.
I checked web site for DEA in Seattle (area code) and they had no one working for the agency with that name.
Continued to check on-line and noticed this site.
Definitely a scammer.....
I received a phone call on my cell phone from a Washington #. The man on the other end introduced himself as agent Frank Thomas from the DEA office in Washington DC. He provided me with a badge # and a case # and said he wanted to question me regarding an ongoing investigation regarding the shutdown of a BIG pharmaceutical company and that he had my information as I had ordered illegal drugs through this company and they had issued a warrant for my arrest. He said I would be arrested that day, finger printed and spend the night in jail. Needless to say this scared the s**t out of me. I told him I had NEVER done such a thing and have never been involved in any illegal activities. Funny thing is he knew I was in San Antonio and said officers will be coming to pick me up soon if I don't come to this address he provided and put up $1800 in bail money. He said he would protect me from being thrown in jail. That he had done a back ground check on me and since I had no record he could prevent this from happening if I would agree to cooperate with the case. I told him I would have to call him back after I got my money together. I immediately called my husband and he instructed me to contact the local DA office at which I did. I told them what had happened and they said it was a SCAM. They checked their system and of course, there was no warrant for me. They also had me contact the local DEA office to report the information. I did so and the officer said the same thing. It's a known SCAM and thankful that I investigated before I gave them any money. He said you can't believe the people that give them money BEFORE asking questions. SO..I called the "fake DEA" agent back and he asked if I had gotten my money together I started laughing and told him what I did. And that he is now under investigation...he hung up on me. I have not heard another thing.
Received a message from a "Detective Bush" of the "DEA Headquarters" claiming that I was part of an ongoing investigation and I needed to call back. I already knew it was fake. I called back spoke to a male who told me "'Detective Bush was not available" and I could call back in 45 minutes. He asked me my name, I told him I knew he was a fraud and he proceeded to get upset at me for calling if I already knew. It was pretty amusing. I assume they already got rid of the phone or changed the number because I called back and it went to voice mail. Anyway I have had this happen to me a few times now, they try and scare you into giving them money.
I received a phone call on my cell phone from a Washington # 206 497-5936. The woman left a message stating she wanted to speak to me about an ongoing criminal investigation and to return her call. When I returned the call, I spoke with an Agent THOMAS from the DEA office in Washington. He provided me with a badge # 3319 and a case #01421551910 and said he wanted to question me regarding an ongoing investigation regarding the shutdown of a BIG pharmaceutical company and that he had my information as I had ordered illegal drugs through this company and this company was found to have 15 kilos of cocaine and therefore I am involved with a federal investigation. He asked me if I was aware that it was illegal to order prescriptions via the internet without a doctor's prescription...I said "no"... he said that not knowing was not a defense and that the DA would be issuing a warrant for my arrest. He asked me if I understood how serious the matter was and I said..."NO"...I don't understand. I then said, "This is highly unusual that I am receiving a phone call without any paperwork... and he then hung up.
Received this today and found where this person called others with the scam.. Do not call. If I receive more calls, I plan to take the number and messages to the police.
No real DEA agent will call you for personal information or ask you for money.
She said she was calling from the DEA to investigate a criminal investigation. Asked to be called immediately. Identified herself as a federal agent. I received a similar call 12/24/12 demanding I wire 500. Or they would come, arrest me & throw me in a Dominican Republic prison. Fortunately I have a friend who has a brother who is an FBI agent. This is a scam & I can't figure out why this hasn't been stopped. I have forwarded the number to the Miami FBI
Received a call at my office desk phone from a person claiming to be "Officer Paul Davis, special agent for the DEA" and he said that he had questions for me with regard to some "opening and closings and an ongoing investigation". He left his phone number 206-497-5936 asking me to call him back. The message was left on Feb 12th 2014. I never called back as I recognized this call appeared to be some type of scam. Today, I decided to conduct a search on the web and I found several posts about this phone number. I have no clue who is impersonating a "Special Agent of the DEA" and I hope that whomever these people are that are conducting this scam gets caught. Seems like scammers are resorting to all sorts of tactics to try to grain a persons personal information these days. Little did this scammer know that I work in the security industry and have for over 23+ odd years now. I recognized this call as a scam from the start
It looks like Paul Davis, the guy that called me on Friday Feb 21, 2014, has already called several people with this scam! He is rude and demanding which is very unnerving. He claimed someone from my address had ordered illegal online drugs (which I knew to be false) and said I needed to send money immediately or the local DEA would come and arrest me. He is good at what he does and I just hope that no one actually falls for this scam! He should be arrested and the company he works for should be exposed, fined, and shut down.
A Paul Davis claiming to be from the DEA and asking me to call him back at 206 497 5936X227 and his division # is 39. Claiming some sort of ongoing investigation. My experience seems to be same as those from above. Not planning to call him back.
