The FTC's New Home for Consumer Information

Looking for consumer resources from the Federal Trade Commission?  They’re at, a new URL for information from the nation’s consumer protection agency.

Consumer Information

What’s different? The site is dynamic and integrates a slew of features, including videos and games, better search results, and a blog. The information has been streamlined to highlight actionable, practical tips about a wide range of topics — from getting your free credit reports, buying a car, and protecting your personal information all the way to evaluating claims for weight loss products, judging potential business opportunities, and dealing with those irritating, illegal robocalls. A new Scam Alerts page features blog posts, organized by date and topic, that can save you money, headaches, and time.

We hope you’ll share these resources with your family and friends, too. If you write a blog, embed one of our videos. If you teach a class, use one of our games. If you have an unscheduled minute, listen and download an audio tip. Email an article to a friend or post it on the social networking site you use. All the tools to be part of the new consumer protection connection are there, and they’re free and easy to share.
