At econsumer.gov, you can report international scams and learn about other steps you can take to combat fraud. Your complaints help consumer protection agencies around the world spot trends and work together to prevent international scams.
Today, consumer protection agencies in more than 40 countries participate in econsumer.gov. To respond to the challenges of internet fraud and improve consumer confidence, econsumer.gov began in April of 2001 to gather and share cross-border e-commerce complaints.
The project has two components:
- A public website that allows consumers to make cross-border fraud complaints. It’s currently available in English, French, German, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Turkish.
- A secure econsumer.gov website that allows law enforcement around the world to share and access consumer complaint data and other investigative information. The secure website is hosted through the Consumer Sentinel Network platform by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
