How to File a Complaint with the Federal Trade Commission – Revised


This is you. You’ve been ripped off, or
you’ve spotted a scam. Don’t keep it to yourself. Take it to the Federal Trade Commission by filing a complaint. What kind of complaint? The Federal Trade Commission is the nation’s Consumer Protection Agency. So if a business doesn’t deliver
on its promises, or if someone cheats you out of your
money, the Federal Trade Commission wants to
hear about it. I bought a phone card with 350
minutes of calling time, but it cut me off after 20. I’m getting bills for
things I didn’t buy. I think someone stole
my identity. The letter said I had won a
sweepstakes, but I had to wire money to cover the taxes. I did and never heard
from them again. I responded to an add on line
for a free trail offer. But then I started seeing
charges for it every month. I thought the email was from
someone who saw my resume and wanted to hire me. But they asked for my
bank account number. I reported it to the Federal
Trade Commission. Telling the Federal Trade
Commission helps us stop ripoffs, scams, and
fraudsters. Your complaints matter here. To file a complaint, just
go to ftc.gov/complaint, and answer the questions. Or call 1-877-FTC-HELP. That’s all there is to it. If you’ve been ripped off or
scammed, complain to the Federal Trade Commission. It can help put the bad
guys out of business. [music playing]

  8. Some male india voice just promised to lower my credit card interest rates. He said he was with Credit Card Services. He said he needed to verify the number on my card. I gave him the first 4 and told him to give me the next 4 numbers. Since he is with the credit card company, he should know this. He couldn't ….so I said, then give me the name on my card…. he replied Junchkin Boblina. What a knucklehead, not even close. So I went to the FTC complaint website and filled out the form and included the caller I.D. number I received the phone call from along with my number the phonecall was received on and the date and time. They should be able to trace that. My question: How many of these complaints actually get any "immediate" attention before any real chance of catching them exist?

  10. What if I have a complaint about a decision the Federal Trade Commission made? The Ahold Delhaize merger resulted in the closing of several of my favorite Hannaford supermarkets, because ahold Stop & Shop stores we're in the same towns. Hannaford store brand items unlike Stop & Shop's mainly sparkling water was sweetened with sucralose instead of aspartame which I am severely allergic to. It is difficult for me to get sparkling water without aspartame now cuz of this. Store that purchased former Hannaford locations in Massachusetts is more expensive than Hannaford was so in a way the Federal Trade Commission is ripping people off.
