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 elderly mother asked a niece to write checks to pay bills, where niece used mother’s savings account funds without mother’s knowledge to open CD account in mother’s name while making themselves (niece) beneficiaries of CD account via Transfer on Death. Mother died and niece obtained CD funds unauthorized. CD account was created online with cyber bank, where niece forged mother’s signature. I need help on what to do.

Realtor purchased a house by telling me the transfer title I had was no good.The property was going thru bankruptcy. He said I could stay in the home. Not to worry about anything. This was in 1998. I’ve been living here since. In Nov 2016 I found out that he used my dead husband and dead mother to sign off on the house. He has since changed the names to sheriffs that he is very close with. What can I do?
