To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Copies of all complaints to the Federal Trade Commission regarding the following companies:

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Mica,

I received another FOIA request from you regarding Yelp, Inc. Once again, would you care to narrow down the range of your request so it can be processed in a timely manner? Thank you.

Hi Jason,
I did not intend to include yelp, Inc amongst my requests. I wanted to put in google.com.
I was concerned at google's book copying enterprise between
2007 and 2014?
The computer crashed when I just tried to modify my request on Amazon.com to number 13 on your product list regarding complaints on the advertising and sales of books.
Many thanks
Mica Jay

Hi, Mica,

That is fine. I will withdraw your Yelp request, but for the Google request, you will have to file a new request. We are unable to link previous requests with new ones. The requests have to have a fresh FOIA number. Thank you sir. Have a great holiday.
