    Crime Reporting Resources:

    This is far from an exhaustive list of resources and places to report criminal activity, and I'm not trying to address local or state contacts as there are simply too many of them.

    FBI Tips Website

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1] Please use this website to report suspected terrorism or criminal activity. Your information will be reviewed promptly by an FBI special agent or a professional staff member. Due to the high volume of information that we receive, we are unable to reply to every submission; however, we appreciate the information that you have provided.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Internet Fraud Reporting
    :
    http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

    The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C),
    and the Bureau of Justice Assistance
    (BJA).

    IC3's mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints
    regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime. The IC3 gives the victims
    of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities
    of suspected criminal or civil violations. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies
    at the federal, state, local and international level, IC3 provides a central referral
    mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.
