Phishing Scam on DEA Pharmacy Registrants

Mar 27, 2017

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has received notification of a faxed-based phishing scam. The DEA urges registered Pharmacies to be on guard against a fax asking for licensing information. The DEA is continuously identifying safeguards against suspicious activity, but cybercriminals are ever evolving with identity theft scams.

Registrants who receive information that seems suspicious should forward them to: DEA.Validation@usdoj.gov

Also, the DEA does not send unsolicited faxes or emails requesting sensitive data.
