Reporting Bitcoin Scams

Along with Bitcoin, cryptocurrency-related fraud has flourished over the past few years. Investment scams, pre-mine scams and fake manufacturers are all too common in the Bitcoin ecosystem. Scammers typically hide their identity, making it very hard to retrieve any money. For anyone who believes they might be a victim of an internet scam it is advised to file a report with the following authorities:

United States
Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

United Kingdom
AktionFraud

Hong Kong
Hong Kong Police

A report can be filed with as little information as a website or email address. It might not lead to immediate action, but it is a risk-free way that can help in stopping the scammers.

Please post further additions to the list above in the comment section.
