Always ask FDA to show ID

Executive Summary

FDA warns consumers Nov. 12 about "a fraudulent scheme to extort money from consumers by callers who falsely identify themselves as FDA Special Agents" or other agency officials. FDA said calls entice consumers to purchase discounted drugs by wiring funds to addresses in the Dominican Republic. A follow-up call attempts to blackmail the consumer, insisting that a fine of several thousand dollars be sent to the DR to avoid incarceration or other legal action. "The public should note that no FDA official will ever contact a consumer by phone demanding money or any other form of payment. FDA officials always present identification in person when conducting official business," said Michael Chappell, acting associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, in the press release
