Welcome to the SCARS
Scams Fraud & Cybercrime Reporting Portal


It is essential to report scams & cybercrime. Without reporting, governments around the world have no clear idea of the scope and magnitude of these crimes.

NOTE: SCARS Never Shares this information with For-Profit Companies – your reports are strictly confidential

Reporting helps your government understand the problem and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide. Your reports are essential even if the police cannot take action! To learn more about reporting visit

SCARS is a United States Federal Trade Commission Sentinel Reporting Partner is an Official SCARS Website and is an Entry Point for the SCARS|CDN Cybercrime Data Network – the Global Anti-Scam Data Reporting Network™ which automatically distributes scammer data across its whole network. The SCARS|CDN network was built to provide a viable means to distribute scammer information with “Chain of Custody” legal compliance. Since most scam information is wasted on a single website or social media page making it essentially useless, the SCARS Anyscam reporting portal solves that problem. Of course, you should also report these crimes on official government websites as well. Reporting is always FREE and you will not ever be contacted to sell you any services.

How To Properly Report Scams?

Posting & exposing scams & scammers on social media serves almost no purpose. These are crimes and criminals, not a game. Always report scams properly to law enforcement, government, and their partners (such as SCARS.)

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is often nothing (in many cases) that they can do.

You must always report scams involving money lost or where you received money. To learn how best to do this visit

Please Note: SCARS at its discretion may display reported scammers’ photos – showing the scammers only on our various websites. We will never identity who reported the scammer. Your report always remains confidential.
