Action Fraud warning over fake websites

We have been made aware of two fake websites using our name.

Members of the public who are searching for the official website (for example on search engines) may be directed to one of two fake sites, action-fraud.com or actionfraud.eu.

Visitors to these sites may then be asked to supply personal or financial information.

We have already disrupted one website that was being used to commit this fraud and we are working with domain name providers to identify other fake companies and shut down fraudulent websites.

Protect yourself:

  • Under no circumstances will Action Fraud request for you to make a payment to report or use our services.
  • If something feels wrong then it is usually right to question it. Websites may appear trustworthy, but it is important to verify through a trusted source.
  • If you have been a victim of fraud or suspect a company of fraud please contact Action Fraud via the only website that is legitimate https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

If you have been a victim of fraud or suspect a company of fraud please contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via the online reporting tool.
