How To File A Complaint With The FTC

Here at Consumerist, we’re constantly writing about online frauds, scams and misleading deals. But for all our writing, we’re not a federal agency. That’s where the Federal Trade Commission comes in. The good folks over at the FTC have just put together a short video demonstrating how easy it is for you to file a complaint with them on their site or over the phone.

In fact, it’s so easy, you don’t even really need to watch the video:
1. Go to and follow the instructions.
2. Call 1 877 FTC HELP
