Do you suspect a scam?  We want to hear from you! |

We know that scammers target Latinos with calls and ads in English and Spanish because the FTC has sued to stop them. When the FTC hears about the Latino community’s experiences and collects their reports about frauds and scams, it helps everyone. Want to be part of the solution? Add your voice and help us get the word out this #HispanicHeritageMonth.

Start by learning more about frauds and scams at and how to report your experiences to the FTC at Filing a report is easy. Want to report in Spanish? Visit Share this information with your friends and family!

When you tell the FTC about a scam, fraud, or a bad business practice, the amount of information you share is up to you. Giving us a phone number will help investigators get in touch with you if we need more details. But reports can be filed anonymously, and advocates can also file on behalf of someone else. The important thing is to report and share the information with others, because even telling one other person about a suspicious call or offer can help everyone avoid scams.
