    Federal Trade Comission

    The Federal Trade Comission is a public institution which protects consumer's interests, preventing unfair business practices and giving citizens resources for reporting fraud, identify theft, unwanted calls and spam and other issues.

    "Big government, taken over by big money interests. The Federal Trade Commission is supposed to level the field, fight for the little guys; but what it's actually been doing is making sure the rich keep their money and corporations don't have to spend any on mere customers and customer complaints. The only businesses that get fined are those that can't sweep a problem under the rug, or don't pay enough to make sure it doesn't get noticed. I long for the days when government was by the people and for the people. Now a days, it's all the justice you can afford; and us little people can't afford any. Not a fan of the FTC."
