    Out of the dozens of Privacy violations, credit report tampering, identity data theft issues committed by those the FTC is "supposed" to be watching/prosecuting - the FTC has done NOTHING to "protect" me as a Consumer! Be for REAL.
    ONCE I see ANY federal corp authority SHUT DOWN some big Corp for reselling my personally identifiable information all over the place (like STATE AGENCIES, BANKS, Credit Unions, Members of Bars, etc) Then - I might think differently about the WASTE of Taxpayer funds on this JOKE of an agency.
