Anyone who needs help with any kind of internet business should check this out:

That is such a horrible site it could only be run by the government…

There are probably better options out there. IC3 is inundated with complaints, typically complaints in the tens to hundreds of millions of dollars in loss….not sure how much they'd be willing to assist in smaller issues.

Note that this scam number has been up for "at least a year".

Prince Alberts Revenge:the amount is irrelevant and the person I work with had a $400 USD issue resolved. I read on TMP about people who've been fleeced for more than that by painters who never delivered.

Fergal: The person I know phoned them, he felt the same way as you.
