    FDA Import Inspection

    Yes, I AM fucking paranoid...so there is that, but I received a phone call from a # I did not recognize and whom did not leave a msg. However, when I googled the number it came back as FDA Import Inspection. I'd never even heard of that. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else on this forum who might obtain their medicine from overseas has ever received any contact whatsoever from the aforementioned? I have not ordered anything from anyone in months.

    Call back and ask what they wanted? Just remain calm and dont say anything to incriminate yourself, if you dont know what to say then you dont have to say anything at all. But other then that, i see no reason why to be afraid to talk to them

    Don't call that number. There is zero benefit to doing so.

    At BEST, it's the FDA fishing. Don't make their job easier. There is likely a slim chance this is the case. If it actually was the FDA, they would probably leave a message.

    Most likely, it is a scam to try to separate you and your money. This is the most probable case.

    If anyone contacts you, most like it will be a letter from Customs.

    Sometimes they will open a pack to see what it contains and send it on to you if they don't find anything objectionable. It will look something like the picture below.

    The one I posted above also passed through Customs examination. As you can see, they use several different versions of tape when they reseal it after examination.

    There is no reason for you to call them back. Even if you haven't done anything wrong, you shouldn't just be volunteering information to the government lol.

    It's either a scammer or it's the government. Either way, you don't benefit from calling them back. If it was some sort of LEO, if they had enough info on you to arrest, they wouldn't be calling you.

    In the future, there are enough domestic sources out there that you really don't need to mess with the overseas ones. You might pay a little more, but it's worth it.
