Tulsa Police's Cybercrime Tip of the Week
Date: January 16, 2004
Filing Cybercrime Reports
With the advent of the Internet, the ability of criminals to victimize people has become a gobal issue. In order to address suspects living one location and the victim living in another, most State and Local Police Departments have become members of IFCC which stands for Internet Fraud Complaint Center.
This web site consists of a partnership between State and Local Police Departments, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), and the NW3C (National White Collar Crime Center).
This site provides consumers with the ability to file Internet fraud complaints on-line with the IFCC. These complaints are then forwarded to the Attorney General of both the suspect and victim’s State of residence, the local Sheriff’s Department, and the Local Police Department. The advantage of filing the report with IFCC is that patterns of crime by a particular suspect can be identified and a worldwide case can be compiled and prosecuted against them.
The Tulsa Police Department is an active member of IFCC and encourages Tulsa area citizens who become the victim of an Internet crime to file a report with the IFCC and the Tulsa Police Department at www.tulsapolice.org.
