ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The FTC intends to conduct a survey of consumers to advance its understanding of the prevalence of consumer fraud and to allow the FTC to better serve people who experience fraud. The survey will be a follow-up to three previous surveys, the most recent of which was conducted between November 2011 and February 2012. Before gathering this information, the FTC is seeking public comments on its proposed consumer research. The information collection requirements described below are being submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (‘‘PRA’’). DATES: Comments on the proposed information requests must be received on or before January 5, 2017.

Anderson, Economist, Bureau of Economics, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Mail Stop H–238, Washington, DC 20580, Telephone (202) 326–3428. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: On March 31, 2016, the FTC sought comment on the information collection requirements associated with the proposed Fraud Survey (81 FR 18628). Three comments were received.1 Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3521, the Commission is providing this second opportunity for public comment. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above, and must be received on or before January 5, 2017. As part of its consumer protection mission, the FTC has brought hundreds of cases targeting perpetrators of consumer fraud and has committed significant resources to educational initiatives designed to protect consumers against such fraud. In order to ensure that its efforts in fighting fraud are as effective as possible, the Commission would like to make certain that it has current data on the prevalence of various types of consumer fraud. The Commission has conducted three previous surveys designed to estimate the prevalence of consumer fraud among U.S. adults. The most recent survey was conducted between November 2011 and February 2012. A report describing the findings of that survey—Consumer Fraud in the United States, 2011: The Third FTC Survey— was released in April 2013 and can be found at https://www.ftc.gov/sites/ default/files/documents/reports/ 1 The comments are available at https:// www.ftc.gov/policy/public-comments/initiative-658. PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consumer-fraud-united-states-2011third-ftc-survey/130419fraudsurvey_ 0.pdf.2 The 2011 survey asked about consumers’ experiences with 15 specific and two more general types of fraud during the previous year. Among frauds covered by the survey were the purchase of a weight-loss product that did not work as promised, paying money or making a required purchase to obtain a promised prize or lottery winnings that had never been received, and being billed for a buyers’ club membership that a person had not agreed to purchase. Based on the survey results, during 2011, 25.6 million U.S. adults—10.8 percent of the U.S. adult population—were victims of one or more of the frauds covered by the survey. Among the 15 specific frauds included in the survey, the most frequently reported was the purchase of a weight-loss product that the seller falsely represented would allow the user to lose a substantial amount of weight easily or lose the weight without diet or exercise. The survey results suggested that during 2011 5.1 million consumers—2.1 percent of the U.S. adult population—had tried such a product and found that they only lost a little of the weight they had expected to lose or failed to lose any weight at all. Description of the Collection of Information and Proposed Use: The FTC proposes to conduct a telephone survey of 3,700 randomly-selected consumers nationwide age 18 and over—100 in a pretest and 3,600 in the main survey— in order to gather specific information on the incidence of consumer fraud in the general population. As before, in order to obtain a more reliable picture of the experience of demographic groups that the earlier surveys found to be at an elevated risk of becoming victims of consumer fraud—including Hispanics and African Americans—the survey may oversample members of these groups. All information will be collected on a voluntary basis, and information on the identities of participants will not be collected. Subject to OMB approval for the survey, 2 Each survey was conducted under OMB Control Number 3084–0125. The first consumer fraud survey was conducted in May and June of 2003. The results of that survey are reported in ‘‘Consumer Fraud in the United States: An FTC Survey’’ (https://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/files/ documents/reports/consumer-fraud-united-statesftc-survey/040805confraudrpt.pdf). The 2005 survey was conducted in November and December of 2005 and the findings of that survey are reported in ‘‘Consumer Fraud in the United States: The Second FTC Survey,’’ (https://www.ftc.gov/sites/ default/files/documents/reports/consumer-fraudunited-states-second-federal-trade-commissionsurvey-staff-report-federal-trade/fraud.pdf).
