Question:

I was the winning bid on an Internet auction site. I sent the seller a money order for the item, but never received it. Where can I go to file a complaint?

Answer:

Internet auction fraud can be reported by filing a complaint on line with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The IC3 is an alliance between the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). IC3 provides an analytical repository for Internet Crime Complaints. IC3 analyzes and refers all fraudulent activity identified on the Internet to appropriate local, state, and federal law enforcement authority. To file an Internet crime complaint, visit the IC3 website.
