Internet Crime Prevention Tips

The FBI has an Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) where you can file Internet crime complaints (including Ransomware complaints), find internet crime prevention tips, read consumer fraud alerts, and learn about current and ongoing Internet trends and schemes identified by IC3.

Their mission statement is:

“To provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity and to develop effective alliances with law enforcement and industry partners. Information is analyzed and disseminated for investigative and intelligence purposes to law enforcement and for public awareness.”

IC3 provides a list of Internet Crime Prevention Tips that we encourage you to review.  These tips cover credit card fraud, escrow services fraud, identity theft, phishing/spoofing, as well as many other fraud topics. 

In this cyber age we must stay informed and practice preventative measures prior to entering into transactions over the Internet.
