To whom do you report identity theft and hackers?
It depends on what kind of identity theft you're talking about. If someone has opened accounts in your name using your personal identity, it would show up on your credit reports and you should file a police report with your local jurisdiction. It should also be reported to the Federal Trade Commission at 877-ID-THEFT.
Identity theft occurring over the internet or using the internet should be reported to the FBI, as the internet is federal jurisdiction. You can reach the FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) at www.ifccfbi.gov. That site acts as a clearinghouse, directing complaints to the proper authorities and agencies.
Identity theft occurring through the US mail system should be reported to the USPS Postal Inspector. There are local offices in every state.
People whose social security numbers are being used can usually make a report to the local police, though that report is generally for records purposes and only provides the victim with a case number to prove they've been to the police. They need to also report the identity theft to the Social Security Administration and the IRS, because payment of taxes is often affected.
The pronoun whom is incorrect. The relative pronoun 'whom' is an object pronoun used as the subject of the relative clause. The correct subject pronoun is who. "When Montague makes it to the city who will he find?" Example for the object pronoun 'whom': "When Montague makes it to the city to whom should he report?" The pronoun 'whom' is functioning as the object of the preposition 'to' (he should report to whom).
Unless you have reason to believe that it is a member of your family or someone close to you, it is practically going to be impossible for YOU, by yourself, to catch an unknown person. If you suspect someone is impersonating you - contact EVERYBODY with whom you have a credit line and notify them ASAP! Then notify law enforcement and make a criminal report.
Civilians cannot "press charges." Only law enforcement and prosecutors can "press charges." However, you can REPORT the offense (and whom you suspect) to law enforcement and they will investigate and take action if they find enough probable cause that the offense occurred, regardless of the age of the perpetrator.
What is the ethical and professional response to a drug dealer accusing a officer of taking his money to another officer?
While the drug dealer is a criminal, he is also a citizen reporting a crime. The officer to whom this crime is reported should treat it exactly the same as any other crime report. The fact that the thief is allegedly a police colleague should make no difference. The proper investigation of the alleged theft will either exonerate the officer or come up with evidence that may lead to a prosecution. For the police officer…
What should you do if you were a victim of credit card fraud and you are now being sued by the credit card company?
hire a lawyer. I had charges thru my checking account where someone used my debit card. I contacted the bank & they resolved it for me. And I did get my money back. Good Luck!

Then you should have filed a police…

Can a wife report a car stolen if the husband loaned it to his child but is hospitalized and not able to speak?
No, as long as the child can prove the parent was able to, and did, loan the car. The wife would be lying to cause the false prosecution of the child to whom the car was loaned and she would have filed a false police report. However, unless the permission is in writing the child should stop using the car until the parent is able to confirm that permission was given and continued use is…
Your supervisor or manager is the first person to whom you should report health or safety matters in your workplace. If, in your opinion, they do not respond adequately, your company's safety specialist, safety organization, or HR department are the next you should report to. After them, you local governmental health and safety regulatory agency. In the US, this is usually, but not always, OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
For all intents and purposes, there are indeed good and bad hackers when considering all the modern definitions of hackers, but the answer one would get to this question depends on whom you ask. In general, there are four categories of hackers. Each category attempts to generally convey the moral compass of that group relative to themselves and everyone else, as well as provide a basic backdrop of information on that category. The first category…

There are several differences between a report and a research essay, the most important of which is that while a research essay is meant to give the conclusions of the writer, the report summarizes the conclusions of others whom the report is investigating. Stylistically, a report is always objective. The format of a report breaks it into sections and subsections, while an essay usually does not require such sectioning. It is always best, when writing…
No. Unfortunately, the number on the back of your card is not related to banking or money in any way. It's a "sequential control number," added during the original printing process, that can help track where and to whom a card was issued. The number is used to help determine whether a Social Security card is valid or fraudulent, to combat identity theft. For more information, see Related Questions, below.
