Despite all efforts, they are able to access the latest technologies easily. Cybercriminals damage the victim's reputation, personal safety and do financial loses.
Not reporting, remain silent and not complaining further motivates these cybercriminals to do even bigger cybercrime. Fast and quick response with complaint provided with evidence can bring such anti-socials behind bars. The evidence could help the prosecutor or investigative officer to determine the type, degree, and circumstances of the crime.

Once a person discovers that he/she is a victim of cybercrime, then keep the evidence safe which may include
- Messages on social media websites or platforms
- Log files, chats, mail receipts with full header information
- Printed and electronic copies of web pages
- wire receipts
Once, the evidence gets secured the next step is to defend the online accounts. Change all accounts passwords, credit card pins or get them locked. Inform financial institutions about fraud or scam and ask them you don't authorize the payment deducted. Inform the cyber police about the crime event, who with the help of a bank would trace the source of authorized transactions.

Don't just think it is a hassle, and it can help you to recover your loses and further prevents more of such cybercrimes.
Even though the police might not have jurisdiction over the crime, but at least they would inform other enforcement agencies.
