Denial of Service – Website Hacked
A fraudster sent an overload (email or requests) of information to your website which caused it to stop working (crash).
The more national reporting data that’s collected, the better the chance law enforcement has to catch the criminals and decrease online crime. Reporting a fraudulent incident will also assure that you have accurate documentation in order to aid in your recovery. Please consider reporting your incident or chat with an online support specialist at the FTC Complaint Assistant. The FTC will create a report number and a copy of the report for your records.

Please consider reporting your incident to the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
Once processed, complaints filed via their website may be referred to federal, state, local, or international law enforcement or regulatory agencies for possible investigation. Any investigation opened on any complaint is initiated at the discretion of the law enforcement and/or regulatory agency receiving the complaint information. Reporting the incident at IC3 will not result in a call back for assistance.
