What you'll need to report to Action Fraud

Before you report to Action Fraud, gather as many details as you can about what happened. Make a note of:

  • details of whoever made contact with you – name, phone number, web address, email address or social media profile URL
  • supporting documents or evidence including emails, text messages or screenshots
  • how you paid any money, for example credit card, debit card or bank transfer
  • what alerted you to the fraud or made you suspicious
