Fake Badges Seized
If an agent of the FBI or DEA wants to question you -- or worse, to enter your home without a warrant -- do two things. First, just say no. Second, call the agent's boss to make sure the agent is who he claims to be.
Why is the second piece of advice important?
Federal agents arrested a man on Monday, charging him with possessing and selling more than 1,300 counterfeit badges representing 35 law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency said.
The phony badges mimic real badges from agencies such as the FBI, U.S. Marshals, Customs, Drug Enforcement Agency, Treasury and New York Police Department, Ficke said. Some even had a signature from the company that makes the real badges.
Agents also confiscated NYPD uniforms and firearms.
