If you notice fraudulent activity on your bank account, notify the Federal Trade Commission immediately, then use the report to notify the police. A more comprehensive report will better equip the police to find the person responsible. To begin this process:
- Navigate to the Federal Trade Commission website.
- Click on “Get Started” on the home page.
You will be asked a series of questions about your situation. Then, you will receive a recovery plan, which you can then put to action with a step-by-step plan provided by the FTC.
