Reporting fraud helps everyone – and now it’s easier to do


You can help the FTC and its partners fight fraud in your community — and you don’t even need to wear a superhero cape (unless you want to). Your story is your superpower. When you tell the FTC about frauds, scams, and other kinds of bad business practices, you’re helping the FTC and our law enforcement partners spot and stop scams. To make it easier, the FTC just launched — a new version of the FTC’s consumer reporting website.

By following a few short steps on, your report is instantly available to more than 3,000 federal, state, and local law enforcers across the country. After you tell us what happened, you’ll get advice from on what you can do next to recover and protect yourself against fraud. Want to see how it works? Watch this “How To” video.
