Protect yourself and others from fraud and exploitation


Reporting financial exploitation helps stop crimes, and sometimes helps the victim recover what they lost. Unfortunately, most financial exploitations are not reported because people are afraid, or embarrassed.

Everyone can help report, and mandatory reporters can report here.

Help others by reporting it. Share your story with others so they are not victimized, too.

Mandatory reporting: Securities industry professionals must report cases in which they reasonably suspect financial exploitation of a vulnerable person as defined by ORS 124.100 has occurred, is occurring, or will occur.
These professionals are defined as broker-dealer salespeople , investment advisor representatives, and people who serve in a supervisory, compliance, or legal capacity for a broker-dealer or state investment advisory firm. Report suspected financial exploitation on this form.

Vulnerable adults: If you are not a securities industry professional but suspect financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult, such as a senior or person with disabilities, report it by calling Oregon’s SAFELINE at 855-503-7233 (SAFE).

All Oregonians: If you, or someone you know, is a victim of a scam or consumer fraud, contact the Oregon Department of Justice: 877-877-9392 (toll-free).

Identity theft: If you, or someone you know, has had their identity stolen, report it and get a free recovery plan from the Federal Trade Commission.

Unwanted calls: If you are on the National Do Not Call Registry and you are still getting unwanted calls, you can report it.

Learn more: Receive regular consumer alerts from the Oregon Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission.
