Financial Crimes

Financial Crimes Information and Reporting System

Welcome to the Financial Crimes Information and Reporting System. This site will provide you with important information on financial crime protection and prevention methods, and will also assist you with filing a report if you have become a victim. Take a moment to navigate through the sections listed below and file a report when you are ready.

This system is for reporting Financial Crimes only. If you wish to file an online report for other crimes, visit the Citizen Reporting System (CRS).

What is the purpose of filing a report online using this system?

  • This system enters your information into our reporting system. Investigators will review your report and assign your case to a detective for follow-up if necessary.
  • Most victims of financial crimes are required to notify the police before filing an Affidavit of Fraud with the financial institution. This system will allow you to do that quickly so you can recover your loss.

What crimes should I report here?

Please use the on-line reporting service for the following crimes:

  • Check Fraud
  • Construction Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • False Pretense
  • Identity Theft
  • Other Financial Crimes

How long will it take to process my report?

Our goal is to have your case reviewed by a Financial Crimes Investigator within two business days. Cases are prioritized immediately depending on whether or not suspects, and their locations, are known at the time the report was filed. Please be patient and an Investigator will be in touch with you soon.

Can I get a copy of the report?

Actual police reports are not released since they may contain information critical to an investigation or which could be used for identity theft. The Investigator assigned to your case will provide you with a letter verifying your report.

Can I report a crime that happened outside Fairfax County?

No, your crime or incident must have occurred in Fairfax County, VA. If the incident happened outside Fairfax County, VA, file a report in the jurisdiction where the crime occurred. The only exception to this rule is Identity Theft.

What if I do not want to use the online reporting system?

The Financial Crimes Squad takes over 4,500 complaints of financial crimes annually. This system is the most efficient way to process and prioritize those complaints. If you choose to report your financial crime through another method, it may take longer for you to speak with an investigator and have your report taken. If you still do not want to file your report online, you may call the Fairfax County Police Department's non-emergency number, 703-691-2131. They call-taker will direct you to the Citizen’s Reporting System and an officer will take your complaint over the phone. Your phone complaint will then be forwarded to the Financial Crimes Squad for review. You may also go to any one of our eight Fairfax County Police - District Stations and report the incident in person.
