Report Wire Transfer Fraud Activity to FBI

October 30, 2018

No matter the dollar loss, title and settlement companies are encouraged to report wire transfer fraud activity to the FBI. This will help the bureau have a better understanding of the frequency of the fraudulent activity.

Complaints can be filed at www.ic3.gov. You will need to provide the following information:

  • Victim's name, address, telephone, and email
  • Financial transaction information (e.g., account information, transaction date and amount, who received the money)
  • Subject's name, address, telephone, email, website, and IP address
  • Specific details on how you were victimized
  • For Business Email Compromise (BEC) events, copy email header(s) – Learn how
  • Any other relevant information that is necessary to support the claimant
