If you’ve been targeted by a scam and you’re not sure what to do, you’ve come to the right place. BBB created the Scam Recovery Toolkit to guide you to relevant resources that can help.
But before you take the next step, there are a few things we’d like you to know:
- Scam criminals stole more than $8.8 billion from Americans in 2022 (FTC). Please do not feel embarrassed or ashamed. This is not your fault.
- This toolkit will help you take the next steps to address the situation, and in the process, you can help protect others by reporting the scam. We’ll show you how.
- We can’t promise that you’ll recoup your money (most never get their money back), but we can connect you with resources that will help you take control of the situation.
This toolkit will provide you with timely information relevant to your own personal situation. Please click any category to the right to learn how to address the situation and protect yourself from further harm.
