- The USPIS will contact you only if more information is needed. Inspectors will gather data to determine if a violation has occurred.
- The USPIS can’t guarantee they can recover lost money (though they’ll try), but your information can help alert them to problems and possibly prevent others from being victimized.
- Inspectors base investigations on the number, substance, and pattern of complaints.
- The USPIS asks you to keep all original documents, including emails, related to your complaint.
