The FTC...

...fails the populace constantly.

Let's be clear that the FTC, FCC and SEC have failed U.S. consumers more times than you can count. IMNHO they are all unscrupulous government agencies that seek headlines to justify their existence while fleecing tax payers. The evidence is irrefutable.

It's incomprehensible that the misuse of personal data by Venmo, Google, Microsoft, Experian and thousands more companies along with next to zero data security does not result in multi-million dollar fines for all. Instead the FTC, FCC and SEC are essentially in bed with the crims. You can throw in the cable companies and Telcos for chronic violations of U.S. law. Comcast is a perfect example with a secret, illegal automated blockage scheme of legitimate international e-mail sent to U.S. Comcast subscribers. Major law firms need to start filing class action suits against these criminal companies to hold them accountable for their crimes against humanity.
