National Scam Targeting Harris County Residents Reports Arguello, Hope & Associates
If you or a loved one shops for prescriptions and supplements online, be aware that a national scam is targeting these consumers.
It is believed that the scam artists are those who actually run the online pharmacies or those who have purchased customer information from these pharmacies. The scam works by targeting those who have purchased supplements or prescriptions online and calling them stating that the individual could be charged for illegally buying these items online.
One victim said they received a phone call from a person claiming to work for the Drug Enforcement Administration of the United States. The caller then claimed that the victim needed to pay a $2,500 fee in order to be to part of a so-called “defendant release program”. In one case the man requested that the victim meet at a particular location with the cash.
It is important for consumers to know that no government agencies will cold-call an individual and request money from them. If you believe you are being targeted by scammers and are receiving harassing phone calls, contact an attorney to determine what your legal rights are.
