If you are a victim of internet fraud, make an online complaint to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)
. The IFCC will forward the report to the appropriate investigating agency. Please remember the following if you have the address where the merchandise was delivered:
- The individual who live at that address cannot be automatically arrested and charged with compromising your identity or using your credit/debit card number.
- An investigation must prove that the person living at that location was responsible using your information.
- A positive identification of the responsible person must me made by a witness.
- The delivery addresses are frequently vacant residences. The delivery driver (UPS, Federal Express, etc.) leaves the packages at the residence, and an unknown person recovers them later.
