Reporting Cybercrime

If you believe you are a victim to a cybercrime or identity theft, consider the following steps for additional protection:

  1. File a police report and submit a copy to your creditors and others who may require proof of the crime.
  2. File a complaint with the FTC. The FTC maintains an identity theft database that law enforcement agencies use for investigations. Filing a complaint also helps the FTC better assist you, as the commission learns more about identity theft and the problems it creates.
  3. For other cyber-related crimes, check out the following resources listed below for additional information and assistance:
