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:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
