      It sure is. I have rarely heard of anyone trying to impersonate an FDA person. Seems there is a new scam every day. Maybe its the mess the economy is in.

    People posing as FDA Investigators/Inspectors has happened several times in the past. Mostly to try to obtain “samples” of stuff for free.

      Thanks Robert- People should know that Robert Coleman was a national expert for drugs and an educator at FDA prior to retiring and becoming a drug GMP consultant. He was the lead instructor at several of FDA courses I took including basic drug school.
