FTC INTRODUCES CONSUMER FRAUD AND IDENTITY THEFT WEB SITE

Source: Center for Social & Legal Research and Privacy & American Business

Posted on February 17, 2001

      The U.S. Federal Trade Commission announced the creation of a Web site containing statistics about consumer fraud and identity theft from its database of more than 300,000 consumer complaints.

      The database, Consumer Sentinel, is a multiagency project, with more than 80 public and private organizations contributing consumer complaint information. Partners include the National Association of Attorneys General, the National Consumers League, Better Business Bureaus and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

      The site gives consumers access to aggregate data ranging from scams that cost consumers the most, the locations of companies that are the focus of complaints, and the types of identity theft reported most often.

      The Consumer Sentinel has an identity theft clearinghouse available to law enforcement officials to aid in investigations of fraud and identity theft. Consumers can also submit complaints to the FTC through the Web site.

      The FTC's Consumer Sentinel Web site is available at: http://www.consumer.gov/sentinel/
