Report



 

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. 

The FTC cannot resolve individual complaints, but they can provide information about what next steps to take. How much information you give them is up to you. They will share your report with local, state, federal, and foreign law enforcement partners. Your report might be used to investigate cases or in a legal proceeding. Please read their Privacy Policy to learn how they protect your personal information, and when they share it outside the FTC.
