Hi let's take a look at the Federal Trade Commission's complaint assistant website remember I said I was going to show you how to report a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission well let's take a look in the upper right hand corner you can click here and have a chat with the technical support specialist that's right you can actually talk to somebody online between the hours of 9:00 a.m. a p.m. on Monday to Friday you just click here now it's Saturday today so it's unlikely that we'll be able to have a chat as you can see the technical support chat area is closed because of Saturday but if it's Monday to Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. you'll be able to chat online with the support specialist now if you have a problem where you think someone is falsely claiming to be from the government and you want to report it you can click here if you have a problem in which you're concerned about somebody incorrectly handling your personal information you can click here if you have a problem concerned with identity theft click here the site will ask you to move forward to an area called identity theft gov and there you can report your identity theft if you have a problem with internet services online shopping complaints or other computer problems such as viruses or worms click here if you have a problem with telemarketing calls telemarketing texts or spam click here and if you have a problem with mobile devices or telephones click here well I like is if you have a problem concerning credit and it click here have problems with credit cards credit reporting mortgages payday loans or other loan services collection practices the service of debt management companies or counseling companies you can't report all that information to the Federal Trade Commission because if they're doing something incorrect or inappropriate to you the odds are that they're doing it to others and they should not be able to get away with it now the Federal Trade Commission will tell you that it cannot resolve individual complaints but what I will do is what it will tell you what steps you should take next it will give you the information you need to proceed forward it will also tell you that it will share your information with state local federal and foreign law enforcement agencies so that they can use the information that you give them in their investigations well hope this helps have a good day Music

FAQ

I’m being sued and I’m representing myself in court. How do I fill out the form called “answer to complaint”?
You can represent yourself. Each form is different per state or county but generally an answer is simply a written document which presents a synopsis of your story to the court. The answer is not your defense, just written notice to the court that you intend to contest the suit. The blank forms are available at the court clerk’s office and are pretty much self explanatoryThere will be a space calling for the signature of an attorney. You should sign your name on the space and write the words “Pro se” after your signature. This lets the court know you are acting as your own attorney.
How effective has the FTC's Do Not Call Registry been in preventing unwanted phone calls to your home?
It used to work about 10 years ago. And then technology made it more or less obsolete.Using the internet to dialup landlines and mobile lines is cheap and so low cost it may as well be free. Invest in a bit of common equipment and voila, you’re in the scam business. Additionally, the calls don’t even have to be from USA, they can come from anywhere in the world with decent internet access.Use caller ID and do not answer your phone for any unrecognized callers. If I don’t know who is calling, I don’t bother to pickup.The IRS, your local police or sheriff, your credit card company or bank are not going to call you out of the blue. They all use US mail. Only if you initiated business with them, consider responding.
Is the FTC Do Not Call list actually effective?
No.  I've been on the Do Not Call list for 2 years and get 5-15 calls a day from telemarketers, and I'm excluding those who are allowed to call (charities, political cadidates, surveys, companies with whom you do business).  The do-not-call website allows you to make a complaint.  I go through sporadic periods of making complaints against the callers for a few days every now and then, but nothing has ever changed.  The government could be making money by enforcing the do not call list (the fine for violations is substantial).  Given how many calls I get it seems they aren't responding at all.  Also, when you file a complaint online, it used to say that they would investigate complaints, but recently it changed to say that they compile the complaints and make them available to local law enforcement agencies but apparently the FTC just gave up and doesn't try to enforce it anymore.
