Beware of Scams using INTERPOL’s Name

Have you received an email claiming to be from INTERPOL?

Beware! This is Always a Scam.

Don’t be Tricked!

INTERPOL never contacts members of the public directly, never demands money from people and will never ask for your bank details or any money transfer.

We are aware of scams misusing our name. These are usually intended to convince you to send money to the scammers, who use our name because it sounds serious and legitimate.

Don’t be misled by official-looking stamps or names in the letters or emails. This correspondence (emails or messages) is fake.

Examples of tricks used by scammers:

 

“You are in our database as having been hacked. Please contact us so we can check if you are a victim.”

This one doesn’t ask straight out for money, but seems to be concerned for your welfare. This is probably just a first step, and once you contact them, could led to requests for funds.

INTERPOL does not contact people who are in its databases. And we don’t have a database of people who are hacked.

“Once you have sent us the funds, INTERPOL will issue a letter of authorization so we can unlock your account.”

INTERPOL does not issue any kind of authorization letter related to unlocking funds.

 

“INTERPOL has confirmed this transaction is legitimate and will take action to arrest you if there is any delay in paying this tax fee.”

INTERPOL does not get involved in any financial transactions and does not arrest people (arrests are carried out by national police in our member countries).

“You have been a victim of a financial fraud carried out by scammers. We are INTERPOL and we can help you to recover the money.”

This is probably the same people who scammed you (how else would they have your details?) They are going to try to scam you a second time.

“Your photo is on a website of INTERPOL wanted persons. We need you to confirm your details.”

The only legitimate list of INTERPOL Red Notices is the one published on this website on our Wanted Persons page.

Any other site is a bogus one, aimed at scaring you into paying to be removed. Don’t be fooled.

Let INTERPOL know!

If you receive a suspicious email or correspondence using the INTERPOL name that includes bank account details or the name of a money remitter for you to transfer money to, please let us & INTERPOL know. Send us the details using www.Anyscam.com the contact form link below, so that they can refer the matter to your national police for investigation.

If you receive a suspicious email or correspondence using the INTERPOL name, please report it on www.Anyscam.com and let them know here.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance – get a police report number
  2. U.S. State Police (if you live in the U.S.) – they will take the matter more seriously and provide you with more help than local police
  3. Your National Police or FBI www.IC3.gov & FTC www.FTC.gov/complaint
  4. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide. Your reports are essential even if the police cannot take action!
