From January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2002, the IFCC Web site received 11,636,362 “unique” Web hits (down 32% from 2001)1. IFCC averaged 969,696 Web hits per month. The number of complaints filed during the year equaled 75,063. This is a 67% increase over 2001, when 49,957 complaints were received. There were 16,838 filings in 2000, although IFCC didn’t begin taking complaints until May 8 of that year. The number of complaints filed per month averaged 6,255. There was a steady rise in the number of complaints filed for each quarter of 2002, culminating with 20,325 complaints filed between October and December. During 2002, 48,252 complaints of fraud were referred to enforcement agencies on behalf of the filing individual2.

An average of 4,021 complaints were referred per month. This represents a significant increase over IFCC activity in 2001, when 16,775 complaints of fraud were referred. The higher number of filed complaints may represent a combination of increased victimization and a heightened awareness of IFCC as a viable tool to report a complaint.
