Overview Edit

In September 1999, the Federal Trade Commission unveiled a new Internet Lab with high-technology tools to investigate high-technology consumer problems. The lab allows investigators to search for fraud and deception on the Internet in a secure environment and provides staff with the necessary equipment to preserve evidence for presentation in court. The lab also provides a means to train FTC staff and other law enforcement agents on new investigative techniques. The FTC's Internet Lab was instrumental in a "page-jacking" case that halted a global scheme in which millions of web pages were manipulated and unsuspecting consumers were driven to unwanted adult websites.
