Reporting Internet-Related Crimes
Through a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) , the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has been created to aid in the monitoring and reporting of internet-related crimes. As a tool for local law enforcement, and especially citizens, IC3 will provide a centralized system for reporting internet fraud, internet harassment and threats, web based child exploitation, computer intrusion (hacking), and other such crimes.
In these budget driven times, the Yreka Police Department is determined to provide expanded public services, without additional costs to the citizens of Yreka. New programs like the Internet Crime Complaint Center will offer an opportunity for citizens to access much needed services, while keeping local expenses at a minimum.
If you believe you have been a victim of an internet-related crime, please follow the below link to the Internet Crime Complaint Center's website. There, you may make a report of the incident and it will be directed to the proper local, state, or federal law enforcement agency.
Important: If you believe your life is in danger, call 911 immediately!
"While the internet can be a safe and convenient place to do business, scammers are out there in "cyber world" targeting unsuspecting consumers. The LooksTooGoodToBeTrue.com website was built to educate you, the consumer, and help prevent you from becoming a victim of an internet fraud scheme. The website was developed and is maintained by a joint federal law enforcement and industry task force." - Chief Brian Bowles
