I'm sorry to hear about your situation. The DEA has a suspicious orders task force that consists of DEA agents and reps from the pharma industry to determine whether what you have is a controlled substance and whether it was obtained legally. This may be a long process and they may end up trying to get in touch with the seller. Thus, I wouldn't hold your breath as far as when they get in touch with you. What happens next depends on whether what you ordered was legal or illegal. If it is illegal, they will have to turn it over to your attorney general's office or the local district attorney's office to see if there is prosecution. Depending on the severity of the alleged crime, they may or may not pursue it at all. However, at that point, you'll have the right to attorney if they do decide to bring charges to help fight whatever they are alleging you did.

Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
