The Federal Trade Commission (aka FTC) is the nation’s consumer protection agency. The FTC works to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace. They have created PASS IT ON an FTC website containing articles, presentations, video, and activities — with information about scams and pass on some information that could help someone you know. Health, finances, privacy are just some of the issues they focus on. There is a link to the FTC for individuals wanting to report a scam.
