What Information Must I Provide?

Our investigations are most successful when you provide as much information as possible about the alleged suspects(s) and/or victim(s) involved. The more you can tell us, the better chance we have of determining whether a crime has been committed.

As you fill out a fraud allegation, please include the following about the alleged suspect(s) and/or victim(s):

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Telephone numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Social Security numbers

It’s especially helpful to know facts about the alleged fraud, such as:

  • Description of the fraud
  • Location where the fraud took place
  • When the fraud took place
  • How the fraud was committed
  • Why the person committed the fraud (if known)
  • Who else has knowledge of the potential violation
