Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, collects complaints about companies, business practices, identity theft, and episodes of violence in the media.

Why file a Complaint:

Your complaints can help the FTC detect patterns of wrong-doing, and lead to investigations and prosecutions.  The FTC enters all complaints it receives into Consumer Sentinel, a secure online database that is used by thousands of civil and criminal law enforcement authorities worldwide.  The FTC does not resolve individual consumer complaints.
