Action Fraud is the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cyber crime where you should report fraud if you have been scammed, defrauded or experienced cyber crime in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

They provide a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime. People are scammed, ripped off or conned everyday and Action Fraud want this to stop.

The service is run by the City of London Police working alongside the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau who are responsible for assessment of the reports and to ensure that your fraud reports reach the right place.  The City of London Police is the national policing lead for economic crime.

You can report fraud or cyber crime using their online reporting service any time of the day or night; the service enables you to both report a fraud and find help and support.  Help and advice are also available over the phone through the Action Fraud contact centre. You can talk to our fraud and internet crime specialists by calling 0300 123 2040.

When you report a fraud you will receive a police crime reference number. Reports taken are passed to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau.
