Detecting and Reporting Phone and Online Scams (AkLA 2022): Where to Report Scams

Reporting to Government Authorities

Various jurisdictions accept fraud reports. It's a good idea to report any fraud attempts, especially any that are successful as there may be a chance of getting your money back, or at least making sure others are not victimized in the same way. We suggest starting with local law enforcement so that other people in your community can be alerted to the scammers. But consider notifying the State and Federal authorities too.

Cellular/Internet Service Providers

In addition to reporting scam calls, texts and emails to the government, we also suggesting contacting your phone or internet service provider (ISP). They won't be able to get your money back if you lost any, but they can work at blocking scammers from their networks.
