The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning people Wednesday about an extortion scam. It says someone claiming to be with the DEA is telling people they are under investigation, but charges will be dropped if they pay a fine.

The agency says this is a scam.

The DEA says it would never ask for money to make charges go away.
