As part of its ongoing effort to raise awareness about scams targeting the immigrant community, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has developed a series of “fotonovelas” in Spanish. The comic-book style stories are the FTC’s response to many complaints by immigrants about scams from Spanish speakers throughout the nation. The stories offer practical tips for how to identify and avoid common scams.

Please visit the FTC's website to order copies of the fotonovelas — for free — and distribute them in your community. You can access the FTC fotonovela on Unauthorized Practice of Immigration Law (PDF).
