What Happens Next?
  • Once you file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), you will receive the following message at the top of your filed complaint: “Thank you for submitting your complaint to the IC3. Please save or print a copy for your records. This is the only time you will have to make a copy of your complaint."

  • Complaints are reviewed by IC3 and referred to the appropriate law enforcement and regulatory agencies, for criminal, civil, or administrative action, as appropriate.

  • Investigation and prosecution is decided by agency that receives the complaint.

  • Since IC3 does not conduct the investigation, they cannot provide you with the status of your complaint.
