National Cyber Awareness System:
release date: November 29, 2019
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) 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 or try to contact the caller.
- Do not pay the caller.
- Contact your local
FBI field office to file a report.
