The Internet Crime Complaint Center in Richmond, Va., has reported its 2 millionth complaint. The center, also known as IC3, recorded the milestone earlier this month.

The center is a partnership with the National White Collar Crime Center, the FBI and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

It fields complaints from Internet users who believe they've been the victim of a cyber crime, such as identity theft, hacking, theft of trade secrets, or online extortion.

Where appropriate, the complaint is then forwarded to the proper agency for action.

Since it's creation in 2000, the center has more than 750,000 complaints to all levels of law enforcement around the globe, and number of complaints has been rising in recent years.
