From the FTC (I received nothing free from them - oh yes I did - a really nice OnGuard Online Pen that doubles as a highlighter)....
The Federal Trade Commission wants readers of Cyber Telecom to be aware that the FTC wants to hear about it when consumers are taken in by scams.
Our new animated How to File a Complaint video shows them how and includes examples of the kinds of things someone might complain to the FTC about. View the video at ftc.gov/multimedia/video/scam-watch/file-a-complaint.shtm (in Spanish at http://ftc.gov/multimedia/video/scam-watch/file-a-complaint_es.shtm), or youtube.com/FTCvideos. Please feel free to link to or grab the video for your site. People can help stop scams, rip-offs and fraudsters by sharing their experience with the FTC.
The video's announcement comes as the FTC releases its report listing the kind of consumer complaints filed with the agency in 2009. Read more at http://ftc.gov/opa/2010/02/2009fraud.shtm.
Thanks so much,
