A while back I thought I had found a US government website where I could report fraudulent orders. Now I can't find the link. Does the site exist, and if so, what is the name of the site?

Does anyone know if submitting a report there is worthwhile? I suppose it's probably a mystery.

I think if you’re running a legitimate business then you should always report internet fraud to as many sites as you can.

Here are a couple below.

We had a guy make a fraudulent order a while back and we got burned. He tried to make the order again a few weeks later. We knew exactly where the order was going and called the police thinking they could simply be at the delivery address on the day of delivery. They had no interest and said there was nothing they could do. There's no way to prove the guy who accepts the package is the guy who uses the fraudulent credit card, therefore they're essentially immune (and therefore, why internet fraud is so prevalent).

Google, Kansas City, high speed internet... in a while, there will be new ways to know who's who. Privacy concerns sure, but the counter pull (ease of fraud) has shown itself to be a bona fide tug-o-war champ! G's trusted stores program keeps an eye on the store's fulfillment and customer service... what if shoppers got a decent discount for being in an optional "trusted shopper" program? And what if you also got ultra high speed anywhere Internet access for free, just for joining? Forget others / overall privacy, would you trust G to house yours, essentially sell it to others (without giving it to them), use yours, and reward you for it? I would. And I'd be happy to watch the fraudsters evaporate when they wouldn't. Maybe G will instead get ISP to join a "trusted surfer" program, and accomplish something similar.

Yes, I'm an optimist - fraudsters, your days are numbered!

Have you ever heard of the BBB or better business bureau?
If you want to post a complaint to warn people of a bad business than the BBB is a good place to start.

gtellier, I think we're talking about fraudulent individuals, not businesses.
