You may notice some changes around here! Fraud.org has recently gotten a facelift! We may look different - and we've added a few exciting new features to the site - but our mission to help protect consumers from fraud is still the same!
Each year, millions of consumers lose billions of dollars to con artists, who are working to perfect their scams all the time. The good news is, we track new scams as they emerge in order to pass along good information to you.
Educating and empowering consumers and workers to spot and avoid scams and fraud of all kinds has been a central part of the National Consumers League’s advocacy mission for more than twenty years. The hub of this advocacy is Fraud.org, NCL’s anti-fraud consumer education campaign.
The newly redesigned Fraud.org website provides consumers with an easy-to-use resource for learning about scams and cons of all kinds. New features include:
- An updated search function to help consumers quickly find the right information if they are unsure about the type of scam they’ve been exposed to;
- Content that is easily shareable via social networks so that our consumer education materials can be distributed virally;
- The ability to sign up for regular Fraud Alerts to help consumers stay abreast of emerging scams before they become victims; and As always, consumers who have been victims of fraud or been approa
- ched by scammers can file complaints through our secure online complaint form. These complaints are then shared with our network of law enforcement and consumer protection partners;
In the coming months, we’ll be expanding the anti-fraud educational content available on Fraud.org to cover new and emerging scams. We will strive to provide consumer with up-to-date information and practical tips on avoiding scams and advice on how to respond when you’ve fallen victim to these cons.
