    Abstract: In accordance with 7 U.S.C. 26, the CFTC is posing survey 
questions to the public. Questions included in the survey will inquire 
as to how often the respondents would like to receive content from 
CFTC, the format in which the respondents would like to receive 
information, and the topics the information should cover.
    The Office of Consumer Outreach develops campaigns to change 
consumer behaviors, so that consumers can better avoid fraud as defined 
under the Commodities Exchange Act. The first campaign from the Office 
of Consumer Outreach involves utilizing government and non-profit 
agency distribution methods to provide anti-fraud information to 
consumers. This survey will assist the Office of Consumer Outreach in 
determining how the government and non-profit agencies would like to 
receive the anti-fraud information from the CFTC.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register notice with a 
60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of 
information was published on October 30, 2012.
    Burden statement: The Commission estimates the burden of this 
collection of information as follows:
