Action Fraud is the UK's national fraud and internet crime reporting centre

We provide a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime. If you've been scammed, ripped off or conned, there is something you can do about it. Report fraud to us and receive a police crime reference number.

Action Fraud is not an emergency service - dial 999 if you are in immediate danger.
