FTC Launches Fraud Site

By Staff Writer October 27, 2020

The Federal Trade Commission has launched a new website, ReportFraud.ftc.gov, where consumers can report fraud and all other consumer issues directly to the FTC.

ReportFraud.ftc.gov offers a streamlined way to submit reports to the FTC about scams, frauds, and bad business practices. The FTC has long encouraged consumers to report these issues to the FTC when they encounter them – whether or not they lost money to the fraud.

“Every time you report scams or bad business practices to the FTC, you’re helping to protect your community,” said Andrew Smith, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “With ReportFraud.ftc.gov, it’s quicker and easier than ever to share your story, and each report helps the FTC, and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, fight fraud.”

One new feature of the site is that consumers who file a report will receive next steps from the FTC with advice on what to do based on their particular report. The FTC has more information available for consumers, including a new video explaining how the site works.
