Use this form to report online scam ads in paid-for space: including ads on newspaper websites, paid-for search engine ads or ads appearing on social media.
We share information gathered via those reports with our network of key industry partners, including all the major social media platforms and ad networks operating in the UK, so that scam ads are taken down and the information used to stop similar ads appearing.
Examples of such ads include:
- fake celebrity news, such as reporting a celebrity has been assaulted or has died when that is not true, or links through to websites making these claims
- false celebrity endorsements, such as claiming a celebrity made their money through cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and is encouraging others to do the same
- false claims that a celebrity or TV programme endorses products such as CBD gummies, diet supplements, or other health products
- clearly false or outlandish claims for products, for example that a device can save 90% on energy bills, or offering miracle cures
