FBI El Paso at its Midland and Alpine RAs have seen a recent increase in phone calls that spoof the Bureau’s phone number as part of a Social Security scam. The callers will often “spoof,” or fake, the local FBI’s phone number, so the call appears to be coming from the FBI on the recipient’s caller ID.
Anyone who feels they were the victim of this or any other online scam should report the incident immediately at ic3.gov.
A suspect in Los Angeles was allegedly manufacturing and shipping large quantities of fake pills and other dangerous drugs. Fake prescription medications and drugs laced with fentanyl and other powerful substances are linked to a growing number of overdose deaths nationwide.
You can report suspicious activities and crime by contacting your local FBI office 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also submit a tip electronically at tips.fbi.gov.
