This is because our online fraud reporting tool has additional security on it to protect your information.
You’ll notice that the website address begins with ‘https’, which means the website has a security certificate attached to it. When you submit your information, it is sent to us over a secure internet connection as well.
The online fraud reporting tool will take you through a series of questions about the incident you are reporting, including questions about the suspect. If you have any questions or need help you can ask one of our online advisers by clicking on the “Online advisors, live help” button and chatting online within the tool.
You will normally need around 20 to 30 minutes to complete the form. Once you have started the form you will need to complete it in one session, so before you begin, please make sure you have any relevant information to hand.
For example names, dates, information about the suspect, and details of how any money was lost. Please make sure that you are happy with the information you have entered on each page before continuing, as information you have entered will be lost and will need to be re-entered if you have to go back to a previous page.
