Can you discuss current investigations?

NW3C does not answer questions about current, ongoing investigations. Once an NW3C assisted case has completely worked its way through the law enforcement and judicial system, researchers may be able to discuss those cases, under some circumstances. Requests involving such cases will be considered on a case by case basis. NW3C reserves the right to refuse any interview request at anytime, without citing its reason for doing so.

May I interview a researcher or fraud analyst?

In some cases, media members may be able to interview one of NW3C’s analysts, according to the type of story or report. Such requests will be considered on a case by case basis and NW3C reserves the right to deny requests, without stating a specific reason.

How do I contact NW3C if I have a question that is not answered here?
