If you receive a phishing email or phone text message, we encourage you to report it to the proper authorities. That way, you can do your part to help fight scammers.
Step 1. Forward the email to the Anti-Phishing Working Group at email@example.com. For text messages, copy and text it to “SPAM” (7726). Remember: Do not click or tap any links.
Step 2. Report the phishing attack to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or filing a complaint online at ftc.gov/complaint.
If you think a scammer has your information, such as your Social Security Number, credit or debit card, or bank account number, visit IdentityTheft.gov and take the specific steps listed based on the information that you lost.
If you think you clicked on a link or opened an attachment that downloaded harmful software, update your computer’s security software now. Then run a system scan.
