You can report fraud or cyber crime to Action Fraud any time of the day or night using our online fraud reporting tool

You can also report and get advice about fraud or internet crime by calling 0300 123 2040 (textphone 0300 123 2050).

Our specialist advisers are available during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday between 9am to 6pm
  • Saturday - Closed
  • Sunday - Closed

The times above represent our core contact centre opening hours, although from time to time we do extend the service we provide to you. 

Action Fraud will not call you unless you have requested us to, and will never ask for your bank details. If you are unsure whether a call is genuine, call the Action Fraud team on 0300 123 2040. Please note this number will be charged at your normal network rate.

If you have inclusive minutes within your mobile tariff then calls to our number are included at no cost. If you have used all of your inclusive minutes then the call will typically cost 35p per minute depending on your network provider.

Online advisor - live chat

This service is available 24 hours a day. When using web chat you are speaking live to one of our advisors in the contact centre, who can assist with queries or you help fill out an online report. 

Reporting a live cyber attack

If you represent a business, charity or other organisation which is currently suffering a life cyber attack and data is potentially at risk, please call 0300 123 2040 24 hours a day to report and get advice on what to do next. Please note, if you are member of the public you must report to us through our core opening hours or online here.
