How do I file a complaint with RICO?

Complete, sign and send in a complaint form from those available below.  Some forms are for specific situations and industries so please review the variations and select the one that is most appropriate.  If the special or industry-specific forms do not fit your situation, then please use the general complaint form.   A form can be mailed to you if you call, write or email a request.

Additional information about filing a complaint and the complaints process, including FAQs, are available at the bottom of the page.
