Fraud.org is a long-term project of the National Consumers League.
In 1992, in response to the growth in telemarketing and Internet fraud, NCL 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 more than two decades of consumer education and advocacy related to Internet and telemarketing fraud prevention. More than 100,000 unique visitors come to Fraud.org every month. Thousands of consumer complaints are collected by the Fraud.org and shared with our network of more than 90 law enforcement partners. Through our anti-fraud advocacy, consumer education efforts and direct consumer counseling support, NCL’s Fraud Center and Fraud.org have helped millions of consumers protect themselves and loved ones against malicious scams.
