The National Consumers League, which established NFIC in 1992, advises consumers to be wary of promises of great profits or earnings, wonderful bargains, and free gifts or prizes. "They could just be vapor in cyberspace," says Susan Grant, NFIC director. "The same pitches--whether on-line or on the telephone--require the same advice."
