Internet Crime Complaint Center

IC3’s mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding
the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime. The IC3 gives the victims of cyber crime a convenient and
easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations.
For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level, IC3
provides a central referral mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.

Better Business Bureau

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) system in the U.S. extends across the nation; coast-to-coast, and in
Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. Since the founding of the first BBB in 1912, the BBB system has proven
that the majority of marketplace problems can be solved fairly through the use of voluntary self-regulation
and consumer education.

My account was transferred from Permaculture Credit Union of Santa Fe last October. The new credit union has drained my account of 30,000 dollars. They said they didn’t do wire transfers. I consented to a cashier’s check. The check never arrived. My next statement showed a 30,000dollar deficit. i tried before and after this to get my savings. Nothing worked. Various young women answer the phone,but there is no carrying out of the agreement for access to my savings. Note: I live in New Orleans, Louisiana
