Internet Scams - Fight Back

If you believe you are the victim of an Internet crime, or if you are aware of an attempted crime, you can file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The 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). Even if you are lucky enough not to have a complaint to file, I urge you to check out IC3's list of current and ongoing Internet trends and schemes (the FBI has a list as well) along with their prevention tips before you enter into your next transaction over the 'Net.
