*Report Scams to the Federal Government
You can report scams to the federal government. Your report may keep others from experiencing a scam. Government agencies use reports of scams to track scam patterns. They may even take legal action against a company or industry based on the reports. However, agencies usually don’t follow up after you report, and can't recover lost money.
Do not use the agency contact information included in scam messages. Use contact information in the federal agency directory
to report other government imposters.
