The FTC received more than 2 million complaints overall, from multiple sources including its own consumer complaint hotline, other federal agencies such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”), several state Attorneys General, state regulatory agencies, the Better Business Bureaus, and other nongovernmental organizations.
