28 Oct Get Cybercrime Help Now
Online fraud and cybercrime are incredibly common. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), there were 351,936 cases of cybercrime reported in 2018; that’s over 900 reports per day. The financial losses of these reports totaled more than $2.7 billion. When cybercrime strikes, victims need help through the recovery steps. Until now, there has been no uniform response center or database to aid victims of cybercrime in the recovery process. The 211 cybercrime response program was created by The Cybercrime Support Network (CSN), United Way Worldwide, and United Way 211 by using the existing 211 system and CSN’s cybercrime victim support training program. Now live in three states, Rhode Island, Kent County, Michigan; Orange, Osceola, and Seminole County, Florida. We intend to repeat this model state-by-state across the nation. The lines are live and available to you 24/7. Thanks to this partnership, victims of cybercrime will finally have a voice and a place to go for assistance. Dial 211 to receive support from trained call center specialists. Learn more about our work with United Way Worldwide and United Way 211 in this blog:
