Ransomware Reporting Checklist

Reporting any ransomware attack (whether it was successful or not) is important to help the FBI stop the fraudsters from inflicting more damage worldwide. If you experience a ransomware or other cybersecurity fraud attack, make sure to include this information in your report to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center:

  • Victim’s name, address, telephone, email, and company information
  • Date of attack
  • Circumstances of attack, such as clicking on an email attachment at the time the device shut down
  • Any ransom demand details, including Bitcoin wallet address information
  • Specifics about any money you paid
  • Any information you gather about the perpetrator, such as address, phone, email, website, IP address, email header information
  • Financial transaction information (e.g., account information, transaction date and amount, who received the money)
  • Any information you think can help the FBI, including overall losses you or your business sustained
