The CFMC is an extension of the government’s ongoing efforts to combat cybercrime.  I4C is already developing the Citizen Financial Cyberfraud Reporting and Management System (CFCFRMS) as part of the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal (NCRP).  This system allows citizens to report financial fraud directly online.
