Reporting form

Are you a victim of computer crime?

If you are in imminent danger to life or limb contact the next police station or call the emergency number 117.
If you wish to report suspicious matter on the internet to fedpol or are the victim of cybercrime, complete the online reporting form((Anker)). The specialists at fedpol require your information in writing to deal with the case. They will take the necessary measures if possible and forward the case where appropriate to the authorities responsible.

Here is what you should do:

  • Submit in full all website addresses (URL) and e-mail addresses you have involving the incident you are reporting, whether it involves a specific cybercrime attack or suspicious internet content.
  • Note the act involved (e.g. request for money, bribery, request for personal data, etc.). Also note the date and time of the incident.
  • If you submit your e-mail address, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from fedpol. You can use this e-mail address to send fedpol documents (PDF or Word files) containing the suspicious internet material. NB: Do not change the e-mail subject because this is linked to the case file.

If you wish to report anything involving Facebook groups, pages or commentaries that are not of a criminal nature and have no connection to Switzerland, please send your complaint directly to Facebook. You can do this by using the ‘Reportʼ function on the Facebook website. Facebook will analyse the content reported and act according to its policy.

If the incident has a connection to Switzerland, please report it to fedpol using the online reporting form.
