How to Report Crypto Crime

What to do if you digital assets were compromised?

Crypto crime and cybercrime are growing issues that citizens, business entities, and law enforcement communities still need to understand fully. It is widely accepted that crypto and cybercrime are highly prevalent and increasing. Statistics point to traditional crimes decreasing in Western countries while crypto and cybercrimes are rising beyond the conventional crimes rate of reduction.

One primary reason for our lack of understanding of these emerging trends is that victims of crypto and cybercrime are less likely than traditional crime victims to report their victimization to the police or other authorities. We find that are a few reasons for victims' non-reporting:

    Victims may be embarrassed or intimidated.

    Victims may not know that the act is classified as a criminal offense.

    Victims do not understand how and where to report the such incidence.

    Victims consider law enforcement to be ill-equipped to deal with crypto cybercrime.
