How to Report a Fraud/Scam?

Filing a complaint involves multiple steps. We’d appreciate it if you could share specific details about the crime when you report the fraud.  The more information we have, the easier it becomes to catch the bad guys.

You’ll be asked to: 

  1. Tell us how you got cheated online/offline.
  2. Share your contact information (i.e. name, contact number, address, and email address)
  3. Answer questions related to the type of product (or service) you were using.
  4. Give details about the company or vendor that scammed you. The information must cover the basis (i.e. company name, contact number, website, address, email id, and sales representative’s name)
  5. Disclose essential details about the financial transaction (i.e. paid amount, date of the transaction, and payment method).
