The Internet Crime Complaint Center or commonly know as IC3 is a partnership between the FBI, the National White Collar Crime Center and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

 

The IC3's mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime.  The IC3 gives the victims of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations.

 

If you have been a victim of a cyber or internet crime or if you are searching for tips on how to avoid becoming a victim this site is a very informative and easy to use resourse as well as a reporting vehicle.  The internet has brought the world to Colfax, however the world's criminals have come along with it.  Many of these internet crimes or scams are being perpetrated by criminals from far away jurisdictions and are often international in scope.  The citizen's of Colfax will never be able to support investigations of this magnitude by the Colfax Police Department however by reporting to the IC3 the complaints are tracked and compiled and referred to a federal agency who is able to investigate such crimes.
