 866-720-5721

The National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF) is the result of a partnership between the U.S. Department of Justice and various law enforcement and regulatory agencies to form a national coordinating agency within the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice to improve and further the detection, prevention, investigation, and prosecution of fraud related to natural and man-made disasters, and to advocate for the victims of such fraud.

The NCDF was established in 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when billions of dollars in federal disaster relief poured into the Gulf Coast region.  It is the national coordinating agency for all man-made and natural disasters.  NCDF’s Gulf Coast headquarters is located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Since 2005, the NCDF has received over 100,000 complaints.
