REPORTING CYBERCRIME TO THE POLICE
If you want to report that you have been the victim of online fraud or identity theft, contact Action Fraud. You can do this online or via telephone. Action Fraud is the national fraud reporting service, and is the starting point for any police investigation into your loss. For any other form of cybercrime such as online stalking, harassment, or fears about sexual grooming, you should contact the police directly.
If someone is convicted of a cybercrime against you, the court may order them to pay you compensation.
COMPENSATION FOR CYBERCRIME
As a victim of cybercrime, you may be able to seek compensation through the civil courts. However, a wide range of factors will determine whether this is possible and how successful you are likely to be. This includes whether the fraudster is located overseas, how many people suffered because of the fraud (the total number of claimants) and whether money is available for compensation. Many such cases result in out-of-court settlements..
