Internet Fraud Reporting

Code: FN-1700.1470-330

Programs that provide a hotline or other mechanisms that consumers and businesses can use to report the activities of individuals who are committing fraud over the Internet. The same scams that have been conducted by telephone and mail can be found on the Internet including unsolicited e-mails requesting donations for various bogus charitable causes; requests for confidential financial information which seemingly come from major commercial financial institutions, law enforcement agencies or other recognizable sources; "cybershopping" or auction sites which advertise merchandise or collectibles that are never sent or are not as described; phony investment deals and cases involving securities fraud.
