New VOICE website a resource tool for cyber crime victims

Share this article:

A new website aimed at arming consumers with the ability to quickly report cyber crime is now available.

The Victims of Internet Crimes Empowered (VOICE) site is a result of a collaborative effort between the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and security firm Symantec, according to information found on victimvoice.org.

The site is intended to give consumers a security resource center that allows them to file a complaint if they've been the victim of a cyber crime, as well as tap into information and research tips that empower them to protect themselves from any online threats.

Registered complaints filed on the site are sent to local, state, and federal law enforcement, allowing them to respond to the incident and potentially launch an investigation faster.
