What can you do if an online gambling site is a fraud?
1. Report the site to the Federal Trade Commission. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) helps prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace. The FTC also provides information to help consumers spot, stop and avoid frauds. The FTC enters internet fraud complaints into a database used by civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.
To file a complaint visit ftc.gov/complaint or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261.
2. File a complaint with Your state Attorney General. Find a list of state AGs at naag.org.
3. Check in with the Better Business Bureau. File a complaint about a business, website, or non-profit or charitable organization at complaint.bbb.org.
4. Register with your local consumer protection office. Find an office near you at consumeraction.gov. Look under “Where to File a Complaint.”
