Why report a scam?

When consumers report scams, it helps stop others from falling victim to the same scams. Education is central to the Department's mission and as such we are committed to educating consumers about the latest scams. Please take a moment to tell DCA if you've gotten a scam call, email, text, etc.-- even if you didn't fall victim to the scam.
