Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Bureau of Consumer Protection

If you feel like you have been a victim of consumer fraud, you should consider contacting the Federal Trade Commission and filing a complaint. Many of the disabled and other veterans returning from war have been preyed upon and unless these incidents are reported, the perpetrators will continue such practices.
