Overview Edit

The Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Consumer Protection stops unfair, deceptive and fraudulent business practices by:

  • collecting complaints and conducting investigations
  • suing companies and people that break the law
  • developing rules to maintain a fair marketplace
  • educating consumers and businesses about their rights and responsibilities

It collects complaints about hundreds of issues from data security and false advertising to identity theft and Do Not Call violations. These complaints are used to bring cases, and the Bureau share them with law enforcement agencies worldwide for follow-up.
