Fraud.org from National Consumers League
In 1992, in response to the growth in telemarketing and Internet fraud, the National Consumers League launched the National Fraud Information Center. The mission of the NFIC (later renamed the Fraud Center) was to give consumers the information they need to avoid becoming victims of telemarketing and Internet fraud. In February 2013, the Fraud Center was rebranded and relaunched as Fraud.org.
Fraud.org is the product of decades of consumer education and advocacy related to fraud prevention. More than 100,000 unique visitors come to Fraud.org each month. Thousands of consumer complaints are collected by the Fraud.org and shared with our network of more than 200 law enforcement partners. Through our anti-fraud advocacy, consumer education efforts, and direct consumer counseling support, Fraud.org has helped millions of consumers protect themselves and loved ones against malicious scams.
