Reporting Scams and Spam

The best way to fight scams and spam is to report their originators to the proper government agency. Before you say, “Yeah, like the government is going to do anything to stop these scumbags from committing fraud…”, just imagine the tax dollars you’re pumping into these agencies — they’d damn well better do our bidding. And think of this: what if everyone becomes apathetic and complacent about reporting fraud? Yep, that’s just what the scammers and spammers are counting on. Take the time to report them; nothing will be done overnight, but the more complaints mount for a particular scam artists, the sooner we can drum them out of the fraud business…or, at least, put a serious dent in their scurrilous profit margins.

To help you in what will surely be a seemingly neverending quest for justice against the durance vile scam-perveyors, we’ve searched each government agency’s website to zero in on the precise online forms you’ll need to report scams and spam. We know that these websites are often akin to wandering a huge maze, and so we’ve shortenend the journey for you. Now, go and report those scumbags!
