What to do if you have been a victim of fraud

If you have been a victim of fraud, there is a network of support and information available to you and you can also help prevent other people being scammed. If you have been affected, here’s what to do:

  • Report it to Action Fraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk. You can use the online tool if you suspect you’ve been targeted
  • If you think the company maybe a member of a trade body such as ABTA, report the fraud to them
  • If you paid for the holiday using your credit or debit card, report the fraud to your card issuer
  • If you have any information on any crime and you would prefer not to speak to police, you can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org
