You will need to include some kind of contact information with this report, even if it is only your e-mail address. Your contact information will NOT be displayed on this web site or shared with third parties. This information is needed so that if a researcher has additional questions about your report then they can contact you if necessary. If you have any additional special requests concerning the privacy of your report, please let us know here.

Once your report has been submitted, it may take some time for a researcher to contact you. Do not be offended or discouraged if no one responds to you immediately--it does not mean your report has been disregarded. Because we are a volunteer organization - we receive many reports daily, response times can vary and priority is given to the most recent incidents. Eventually all legitimate reports will be checked out. Thank you.
