I attended a Cisco seminar on infrastructure security where the speaker was a former FBI agent. For reporting computer-related crimes, he recommended contacting your local Infragard office.

Of course I noticed that Infragard was hacked by LulzSec last June, so YMMV.

We've been contacted by the Secret Service before regarding customer servers that have been doing shady stuff. apparently they do alot of the cybercrime work for the federal government. from what I've seen we've been contacted more by them then the FBI. I did email a contact from the SS from a issue early in 2011, hopefully he responds.
