"– It is quite highly ranked when you google on it, " says Jan Olsson, at the national it-cybercrime centre at police national operations department (Noa)."

"According to the site can submit tips which will then be forwarded to the police. It is also possible to make private donations to the organization who wants to make it easier for people to tell the police."
"– And it is not true at all. It is extremely easy to submit tips to the police. It is equally possible to do it on our side, and it is also what we want. We don't want any third person to be able to read the hints, " says Jan Olsson."
"the Danger to leave the tips in this way, sensitive information can be used in the wrong way."

"We must alert and explain that this leaves the you do not tip," he says."
"But whether, in the present time has committed the crime of the one who is responsible for the site's too early to say."
"– We can not say that it is fraud, it is too early because it had just appeared. So far we have not clear to us what is behind this, " says Jan Olsson."
"the Police will continue to monitor the site and act if you see that it is something that is directly criminal."
"– Then we open an investigation where we check whether there is someone who can be suspected of crimes, in this context, " says Jan Olsson."
