Where to report Cyber Crime?

I was send a particularly nasty looking scam today, pointing at this page: here

I thought I'd go and tell "someone" about it but searching for a wat to report an internet crime in China was fruitless. I decided to report it to Interpol. No luck there - their contact page has no mail address for cybercrime.

So searching on reporting an internet crime, most government pages ask me to inform my local police force. I'm sure they'll be very interested in a spam mail originating in China.

The FBI will only allow you to report a cyber crime if you've suffered a financial loss.

So just how does one report a cyber crime before it happens?

Cut our government some slack, we are busy with real issues like burning flags, gay marriage, and making sure only English is spoken in the country.
