If you’ve been scammed:

Report the scam to:

Federal Trade Commission

Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

Google – File complaints about sites that are impersonating legitimate sites and/or are designed to steal personal information.

If you encounter a scam on a job board or blog, be sure to notify the people running the site. Just use the “Contact Us” link.

If your SSN, banking information, etc., have been compromised:

With the right information, scammers can open credit card accounts in your name, try to set up fake PayPal accounts, and cause other financial trouble.

Immediately take these steps:

  1. Notify your bank so they can monitor your account for any unusual activity, and/or ask them to assign you a new account number.
  2. Visit the Social Security Administration website for publications like this on what you can do about possible identity theft.
  3. Contact one of the three major credit-reporting agencies — Equifax, TransUnion, or Experian — to place a fraud alert on your credit file. To speak to Equifax, call 1-888-766-0008 or visit this web page. To contact Experian, call 1-888-397-3742 or go here. For TransUnion, the phone number is 1-800-680-7289. The agency you place a fraud alert with will contact the other two. Renew the fraud alert every 90 days (it’s free to do so) until you’re satisfied the matter has been settled. Be prepared — unfortunately, it could take years.
