Scam alert: extortionists targeting DEA registrants

Criminals are contacting DEA registrants and demanding money and threatening to suspend the registrant’s DEA license if demands are not met. These calls will show on caller ID as originating from the DEA Registration Support 800 number. Please be aware that a DEA employee will never contact a registrant with these demands. The DEA is aware of this scam and asks that you contact them at: or call 1.800.882.9539, to report any criminal activity related to this matter.
