    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
    2. Your National Police or FBIFBI FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States and its principal federal law enforcement agency. Operating under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of Justice, the FBI is also a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community and reports to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. A leading U.S. counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigative organization, the FBI has jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crimes, including financial fraud. (www.IC3.gov)
    3. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com

    This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
