Federal Trade Commission educates consumers on identity theft

Wednesday 25 May 2011 | 10:38 AM CET

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is set to educate consumers on identity theft through a variety of games offered via its website OnguardOnline.gov, online media outlet ctwatchdog.com.

The FTC website uses games to teach consumers how to protect themselves against internet fraud and identity theft. In one of the FTC games, dubbed “ID Theft FaceOff”, the player is a victim of identity theft and has to find ways of getting his identity back by correctly answering questions about identity protection. The games challenge consumers to find solutions to prevent and fight identity thieves from gaining access to personal information, including credit card numbers or account and login information.

Founded in 1914, FTC is an independent agency of the US government having as goal the promotion of consumer protection and the elimination and prevention of what regulators perceive to be harmfully anti-competitive business practices.
