First, it’s important to understand what is fraud.
Fraud is when someone uses a service or site to violate a consumer’s rights.
Fraud involves deception, deception, or misrepresentation.
Fraudsters often target a specific type of consumer or industry — like restaurants, retail, medical, medical services, or any other industry where consumers are a target.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) defines fraud as a violation of the following: the terms of a service; the terms, conditions, and privileges of a product; or the privacy of a person.
Consumers typically do not realize that a company is offering an unfair or deceptive service or that the service they’re receiving is in violation of their rights.
A fraudulent service is a violation if it harms a consumer in a way that the company can control, such as by: misleading the consumer or the consumer’s agent; or by notifying the consumer of the fraudulent conduct.

You may also be able to sue a company for a violation, or to receive money from it for a breach of contract.
To fight fraud, you’ll want to look for the type of fraud you think is most likely to occur, whether you’re looking for fraudulent transactions or products, and what the consequences could be.
The FTC has a website that lets you get a list of the types of fraud and what they could lead to.
For example, if a company tells you that it’s trying to get you to pay for something, it could be a violation.
If you want to be able go after fraudulent transactions, it may be better to file a complaint against a company than a consumer.
And if you’re an employee of the company, you may be able sue for a theft or other violation of your rights.
If the company has the right to stop you from using its platform, you can ask it to remove the fraud.
The company may have to tell you what the violation is.
And you’ll likely need a judge’s permission to file.
You also want to file your complaint in a court that has jurisdiction over the jurisdiction of the FTC.
For examples of what that court might look like, see The FTC’s Fraud Guide.
What kinds of information should I keep in a complaint?
When filing a complaint, it helps to be as specific as possible about the type and scope of the fraud, how it affected you, and the possible consequences of your actions.
A company may want to provide you with a copy of the service or product or ask you to fill out a short form to be added to a report.
If there’s a link to your complaint online, that helps make it easier to find it.
You’ll also want a detailed account of your experience with the company.
In some cases, the FTC says it can take a year to process a complaint.

For instance, your local office might be able help you file your case online or by phone.
