Financial Crime Resource Center

The Financial Crime Resource Center was established to help victims of financial crime recover their assets and regain control of their lives through partnerships and training. We provide technical assistance to organizations assisting victims with various types of fraud, including identity theft, investment fraud, cybercrime, and financial exploitation. We conduct this work through partnerships, and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation has worked with us since we began assisting victims of fraud.

We also work with the Cybercrime Support Network (CSN), a public-private nonprofit collaboration created to meet the challenges facing millions of individuals and businesses affected each and every day by cybercrime.


We have partnered with the Identity Theft Resource Center as well, specifically on a project called the National Identity Theft Victim Assistance Network (NITVAN) – more information about NITVAN can be found here.


Learn About Financial Crime

Taking Action: An Advocate’s Guide to Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud was produced by the National Center for Victims of Crime and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and is now freely available in both digital and hard copies. This guide seeks to empower those people on the front line – the consumer advocates, lawyers, law enforcement, counselors and victim service providers who come into contact with fraud victims every day – and provide victim-centered resources to address various types of financial fraud.
