The Federal Trade Commission Act is a law to protect consumers from unfair or deceptive practices.  Since 1914, the Federal Trade Commission  (FTC)  has been protecting consumers from fraud and false advertising through consumer protection laws.  These include enforcing a number of consumer fraud laws that prohibit businesses and individuals from engaging in certain deceptive trade practices.  Such activities include telemarketing scams,  complaints  regarding  credit  and debt,  mortgage relief  programs  that are not approved by the FTC,  work-at-home offers that request upfront fees, charges for work done under the guise of "credit repair," identity theft protection services that ask for a credit card number  and  royalties  for  writing  or  owning  a song.  

The FTC also oversees the Mail or Telephone Order Merchandise Rule, which requires merchants to ship goods within a specified time frame and prohibits them from requiring consumers to accept certain forms of payment that can be difficult for them to use.
