Report Cyber Crime Right Away!
DO NOT fall victim and take this by just a frown and shake of the head. Or write it off as just another loss. These are very serious situations that can lead to some major complications and troubles. They could ultimately have a VERY NEGATIVE IMPACT in your everyday life.
If you believe you have been a victim of an internet-related crime, report it below to these government authorities:
Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)
The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) refers internet-related criminal complaints to federal, state, local, or international law enforcement. Keep in mind, you will need to contact your credit card company directly to notify them if you are disputing unauthorized charges on your card or if you suspect that your credit card number has been compromised.
Federal Trade Commision (FTC)
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) shares consumer complaints covering a wide range of categories, including online scams, with local, state, federal, and foreign law enforcement partners. It cannot resolve individual complaints, but can give you information on the next steps to take.
EConsumer.gov accepts complaints about online and related transactions with foreign companies.
Department of Justice (DOJ)
The Department of Justice (DOJ) helps you report computer, internet-related, or intellectual property crime to the proper agency based on the scope of the crime.
Make sure you do not fall victim. If you feel you have then let’s get it taken care of by reporting to the above listings.
