H.R. 6435 - Combating Pandemic Scams Act of 2020
The U.S. House of Representatives passed three bills from the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce, which I chair. H.R. 6435 addresses the rising number of scam artists and fraudsters looking to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic. It directs the Federal Trade Commission to develop and disseminate information to the public about known scams and ways to protect themselves.
