What do with do with your report.
First of all, we file your report in our database. If necessary, we will refer your case to the proper authorities. We will treat the information you provide strictly confidentially in accordance with national privacy legislation.

We operate under the protocol of the overarching foundation set up to tackle financial and economic crime in the Netherlands (Stichting Aanpak Financieel-Economische Criminaliteit in Nederland, known by its acronym SafeCin, in Dutch).

Your report matters!
Your report will help us get a clearer picture of fraud committed in or from the Netherlands. The information you provide will be used for further investigation into fraudulent practices. It will tell us what is happening in the world of fraud, enabling us to warn other people.

Of course, if you run a business and you are facing advertising fraud or dubious invoices, you can contact the Fraud Help Desk too.

We can take your report and, if you become a member of our organisation, we can give you legal advice. Our lawyers are specialised in all aspects of advertising scams, including fake invoices and directory fraud.
