In most instances, the criminals instruct their victims to pay the so-called fine via a wire transfer.
If victims refuse to pay up, the criminals often threaten to arrest them or search their house.
The DEA said no agent will ever contact the public by telephone and demand money or any other form of payment.
It is against the law to impersonate a federal agent.
The DEA asks anyone who has received a call from someone purporting to be a federal agent or other law-enforcement officer to report the incident at 1-877-792-2873.
