Help for Victims

When bad things happen, the Attorney General’s office offers help to victims in North Carolina.
 
The Address Confidentiality Program helps victims keep their address safe from abusers. The program gives anonymity to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
 
Seniors in nursing homes and their loved ones can report suspected elder abuse or fraud at any facilities that get Medicaid funds.

If a criminal who harmed you owes you restitution, we can help you get your money.  Under North Carolina law, crime victims are supposed to be the first in line for payment when criminals pay restitution to the court.  Our office of Victims and Citizens Services can help crime victims get their just compensation.
 
Victims of consumer rip-offs can get assistance from the Attorney General’s consumer specialists. The specialists know the law and know how to help.
 
The same goes for identity theft victims who want to get their good names and their financial security back.
 
Victims of crime can learn more about the criminal appeals process and the Crime Victims' Bill of Rights.
