Already Victimized?

The CFPB has provided the following instructions on what to do if you are the victim of wire fraud:
  • Contact your bank or the money transfer company immediately upon discovering that funds have been transferred to the wrong account. Ask the bank or money transfer company to attempt a wire recall.
  • Contact your local FBI and state Attorney General office.
  • File a complaint, regardless of the dollar amount, with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.ic3.gov. Part of the mission of ic3 is to provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the FBI concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity. Information is analyzed and used for investigative and intelligence law enforcement purposes and for public awareness.
  • Report the phishing scam to the FTC.
The U.S. Department of Justice has a page on reporting computer hacking, fraud and other internet-related crime, which has additional resources on reporting computer hacking, password trafficking, Internet fraud and harassment and more.
