Homeland Security investigators raided telecommunications and marketing firm TelexFree’s Marlborough offices on April 15.

The FBI has set up a website for victims of the alleged TelexFree Inc. fraud to log their complaints.

TelexFree of Marlborough and its principals are facing criminal and civil fraud charges for allegedly running a global, billion-dollar pyramid scheme.

While Massachusetts residents have an estimated $90 million at stake, people around the world were involved in the company, according to regulators.

Hundreds of people have contacted the Globe seeking information about where to send their claims for money. The case is currently being pursued in two tracks, both in bankruptcy court, as well as in a separate federal court proceeding.

The website features a link to a questionnaire, which people who believe they lost money in TelexFree can fill out.
