Call your local branch of the US Secret Service, if you're in the states,
and ask for their electronic crimes division.  If you're not in the
states, contact your comprable local authority.  They can work with you to
coordinate with other jurisdictions, etc.

You may have some luck directly with the local police at the point of
origin, but it generally helps to have a broader agency involved to
coordinate matters.
