Report a Scam
How scams are handled differs from country to country. Most countries offer their citizens a way to report scams online. We can not report scams on your behalf but we have collected a list of points of contact where you can report scams.
You should write down every detail of the scam. It will help the authorities in the process of persecution. The more details you have gathered the better are the chances of shutting down the scam or even catch the scammer/s.
Make sure you include:
- Screenshots of conversations
- The names, numbers and addresses the scammers used
- What did the scammers steal from you (e.g password, PINs, money)
- If you paid something- through what method did you pay (gift card, bank)
In case you get contacted again by a scammer – immediately go to the police. In some cases, they will use scambaiting techniques and try to arrest the scammers.
