WASHINGTON (3/29/16)--The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), looking to assess the prevalence of consumer fraud in the United States during 2016, seeks public comment through June 13 on a proposal to conduct a related survey.
This would be the fourth such survey conducted by the FTC; the last one covered the year 2011.
The surveys examine the extent of fraud and the degree to which certain groups of consumers are more or less likely to become victims. They serve to help the agency determine how best to combat fraud.
All comments received will be posted publicly on the FTC’s website. A notice will appear in the Federal Register shortly, with full instructions on filing comments.
