Most popular websites take the safety of their users seriously, often providing online forms to report incidents direct to the provider.

Look for ‘Report Abuse’ or ‘Block’ buttons on every page or at the bottom of the website among ‘Help’ or ‘Support’ pages.

You should read the ‘Terms of Use/Service’ or Site Rules published on the website and mention how you think another user has broken these rules in your complaint.

We have provided direct links to the sites we deal with most frequently – these links may move or stop working so please let us know if you have difficulties contacting a website for help by leaving a comment below.
