Report Fraud On The Internet

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. One of my clients has fallen victim to fraud on the Internet. He notified the local district attorney, but is there something else I can advise him to do?

A. Yes, there is a new federal agency dealing specifically with cyber crime. It’s the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC), a joint venture of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). The fraud center Web site provides a convenient way to report Internet crime, alerting authorities of a suspected criminal or civil violation. For more information, go to www.ifccfbi.gov (see Smart Stops on the Web ).
