Fraud Resources

Through its regulatory oversight of national banks, the OCC works to implement legislation designed to detect, identify, and prevent financial crimes and fraud. You can play a role as well by reporting crimes and fraudulent activities, filing complaints with the appropriate agency, and learning more about consumer fraud.

Report Financial Crimes and Fraudulent Activities

File a Complaint

Regulatory agencies, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), generally do not resolve individual consumer complaints, so why should you file a complaint with them? These agencies compile individual complaints into databases used by law enforcement agencies to detect patterns of criminal activity, to open investigations, and to pursue prosecutions.

Types of Consumer Fraud

Criminals are constantly thinking up ways to get access to your financial information or to get cash from you or your account. Arm yourself with the information you need to protect yourself from these scams.

Visit the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection and perform a key word search to learn about other types of scams.
