FTC Complaint Assistant

How we handle your information:

The FTC cannot resolve individual complaints, but can provide information about what steps to take to protect yourself.

Keep in mind while reporting:

  • How much information you give is up to you.
  • We share your report with local, state, federal and foreign law enforcement partners.
  • Your report might be used to investigate cases in a legal proceeding.
  • If your report can be used for an investigation, it helps us to have your contact information so that we can learn more about your experience.
  • You can download or print a copy of your complaint at the end of this process for your records.

Please read our Privacy Policy to learn how we protect your personal information and when we share it outside the FTC.
