An Addiction Psychiatrist’s Encounter with a DEA Scammer

Increased overdoses, many attributed to an influx of synthetic fentanyl, has put a spotlight on those who care for patients with opioid use disorders. Hundreds of prescribers are being targeted in an elaborate scam by imposters posing as DEA agents in an attempt to extort money. Over a series of phone calls, the imposters put their marks at ease, seeming to be on their side.

The scammers are set up overseas.
