Reporting to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre
Online - Reporting System
The National Cybercrime Coordination Unit (NC3) and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre are working on implementing a new cybercrime and fraud reporting system for Canadians and businesses. By reporting to the CAFC you may be asked to report through the new version, helping the RCMP build a new reporting system for Canadians.
You can log into the Reporting System tool using either:
- GC Key (user ID/password)
- Government Sign-In by Verified.Me
Tips for reporting online
The system will log you out if there is no activity for 20 consecutive minutes. If this happens, you won't be able to complete your report. You'll need to start over or call our toll-free line to report (1-888-495-8501).
Toll free: 1-888-495-8501
We answer calls Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 4:45 pm (Eastern time) and close on holidays.
