The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) reports it is aware of a phone scam where a caller pretends to be a CISA representative. The scammer claims to have knowledge of the potential victim’s questionable behavior and attempts to extort money. If you receive a threatening call from someone claiming to be a CISA representative, CISA recommends the following actions:

  • Do not respond to or try to contact the caller.
  • Do not pay the caller.
  • Contact your local FBI field office to file a report.
