Fallen victim to a fraud? Report and file charges!

You have fallen victim to fraud and would rather not report this to your bank or file charges with the police; maybe because you are ashamed, or think that it won’t make any dif­fer­ence? Do it anyway. First of all, the ones to feel ashamed are the per­pe­tra­tors, not you. You should just forget any feeling of shame you may have and notify your bank and/or the police of this inci­dent, and/or use this report form by the National Cyber Secu­rity Centre (NCSC) for this. There are good rea­sons to do so:

  • Firstly, the infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to your finan­cial insti­tu­tion and the police can help pre­vent more people from falling victim to this fraud.
  • Sec­ondly, there is a chance that part of your money can be returned or reim­bursed to your account.
  • Thirdly, per­pe­tra­tors are in actual fact found quite often. Infor­ma­tion from sev­eral crim­inal charges can be com­bined for assess­ment and used for inves­ti­ga­tions in co-oper­a­tion with inter­na­tional police organ­i­sa­tions. Such inves­ti­ga­tions may take some time, but result quite often in a success.
