With the rise in crime, many people are fearful for their safety. The Internet offers criminals new opportunities to commit crimes without being caught and victimizes victims who have no idea what's coming next online - like credit card fraud or identity theft! By reporting cybercrime when it happens, you can play an important role in making this global problem safer by helping law enforcement track down those responsible.

Cybercrime is a very serious issue that affects all aspects of our lives. If you have been the victim of any type of online fraud, contact your local authorities immediately and file a complaint with them to make sure this does not happen again in the future. Here is the list of some government organizations that you can file a complaint with if you are a victim of cybercrime.
