Center targets Internet fraud

Center targets Internet fraud

The Justice Department and the National White Collar Crime Center last week announced the creation of the Internet Fraud Complaint Center.

'The Internet Fraud Complaint Center allows consumers who suspect Internet fraud to share that information with law enforcement quickly and efficiently,' Attorney General Janet Reno said.

'This center is another positive development as law enforcement responds to yet another facet of cybercrime,' FBI Director Louis J. Freeh said.

The center will be located in Morgantown, W.Va.

Its Web site, at www.ifccfbi.gov, lets consumers file Internet fraud complaints online.

The center's personnel will log the complaints, determine the jurisdiction and disseminate the information to the appropriate local, state or federal law enforcement agencies.
