REPORTING A CYBERCRIME COMPLAINT TIP

Reporting Crimes Online

As we spend more time online, crimes that previously occurred face to face – like credit card fraud, identity theft, and harassment – now occur online as well. By reporting cybercrime to the appropriate authorities, you can play a role in making the Internet safer and more secure for all.


RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO YOU

Once you discover that you have become a victim of cybercrime, immediately notify your local authorities to file a complaint. Keep and record all evidence of the incident and its suspected source. Below is a list of the government organizations that you can file a complaint with if you are a victim of cybercrime.


US-CERT.gov

Report computer or network vulnerabilities to US-CERT via the hotline (1-888-282-0870) or the website (www.us-cert.gov). To report phishing attempts to US-CERT, forward phishing emails or websites to US-CERT at phishing-report@us-cert.gov .


FTC.gov

Report fraud to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov/complaint , if applicable. Report identity theft at www.IdentityTheft.gov, the government’s free, one-stop resource to help you report and recover from identity theft.


IC3.gov

If you are a victim of online crime, file a complaint with the Internet Crime Compliant Center (IC3) at www.ic3.gov. IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).
