We're pleased to share that the IRS accepted the Online Fraud Prevention Foundation's application for tax exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that most donations to OFPF are tax deductible in the United States. Many thanks to the community and our volunteers for all of their support.
SteamRep, our anti-fraud team for the Steam gaming community, announced changes in policies for 2016. See the announcement here. Key changes were made based on community feedback, and new guides and certifications were announced.
We're delighted to have Jamie Martinez join the OFPF board of directors. As a technology professional and a veteran of anti-fraud from the early days of SteamRep, he is a welcome addition. He joins Matthew Casper on the board, taking one of the two director roles we hope to fill over the coming year.
Today we created the official Online Fraud Prevention Foundation website. This page will be used to post our announcements and upcoming changes.
The volunteer SteamRep site/community is also undergoing some changes as it becomes a formal part of OFPF. Stay tuned!
