What to do if you get Scammed

If you think you have uncovered a scam, have been targeted by a scam or fallen victim, it is important to report the crime. Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed.

Fraud can be reported directly to the Police Service of Northern Ireland by calling 101 (999 in an emergency) and by visiting your local police station OR to An Garda Síochána by contacting your nearest and/or local Garda Station (call 999 in an emergency).
