The Federal Trade Commission plans to celebrate Pride Month by highlighting consumer protection issues that affect the LGBTQ + community. These issues include government falsification, job fraud, and cyberbullying. Daniel Kaufman, Acting Director of the FTC’s Consumer Protection Bureau, said, “We are proud of the work we are doing year round to keep the LGBTQ + community safe from fraud – especially our work helping the community learn How to Identify, Avoid, and Report Fraud and Bad Business Practices. ”

The FTC said it will also share resources to help educate the LGBTQ + community about such issues. Check out these updates posted by the FTC available here.
