Question
Can a person earn a lot of money by making under cover drug buys for the FBI?

Answer
No, unlike what some people may think, making drug buys does not make they CI (confidential information) allot of money. Also, the FBI rarely gets involved in this activity, again, unlike what most people think, most "drug buy's" are handled by the DEA (The Drug Enforcement Agency). If the buy does lead to the arrest of a highly sought after individual with a reward, then the buyer may be eligible to that reward.
