Fraud and cyber crime often affects the most vulnerable in our community but anyone can become a target. It's important you know how you can protect yourself and your family.
Victims often feel embarrassed about what has happened but there is no reason to be and its important you tell us. Reporting fraud helps us understand new techniques and put out warnings, investigate incidents and put people before the courts.
In the UK we have a centralised fraud reporting centre called Action Fraud. They record all incidents and provide specialist support and advice.
