    History of the IC3

    In May 2000, the IC3 was established as a center to receive complaints of Internet crime. In June 2007, the IC3
    received its one millionth. In November 2010, the IC3 received its two millionth complaint, and in May 2014, the
    IC3 reached the three million complaint milestone. Over the last five years, the IC3 received an average of nearly
    300,000 complaints per year. The complaints consisted of a wide array of Internet scams affecting victims of all
    nationalities, ages, backgrounds, educational levels, and socio-economic levels.

    The Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) 2001 Internet Fraud Report is the first annual
    compilation of information on complaints received and referred by the IFCC to law enforcement or
    regulatory agencies for appropriate action. From January 1, 2001 December 31, 2001 the IFCC web
    site received 49,711 complaints. This total includes many different fraud types and non-fraudulent
    complaints, such as computer intrusions, SPAM/unsolicited email, and child pornography. During
    this same time period, the IFCC has referred 16,775 complaints of fraud, the majority of which was
    committed over the Internet or similar online service. The total dollar loss from all referred cases of
    fraud was $17.8 million, with a median dollar loss of $435 per complaint.

    From under 20,000 complaints in 2000 to almost 300,000 annually now is a good track record!

    It is the place for those that need to file a complaint to go when they are not sure where to direct that complaint. A perfect catchall!
