The National Association of Attorneys General (http://www.naag.org/) is one of the most under-linked criminal law sites on the Web. Perhaps because they’ve only been on the Internet since February 1997. In fact, according to AltaVista, zero sites link to it! At least zero in AltaVista’s database.

When I visited the home page, there were links to features stories on victories by various state Attorneys General on such topics as lemon laws, lottery scams, and telephone slamming.

There is not a whole lot of content on the site, but what is provided is tremendously useful. For example, their page of links to state Attorney General Web sites (http://www.naag.org/aglinks.htm) is the most complete on the Web. They also include biographies for each Attorney General (http://www.naag.org/bios/bio1.htm). Of course, it would be nice to have USPS addresses and phone numbers for each office, too, whether or not they have a Web site. Fortunately, you can find that information at the Web site of the Technology Marketing Corporation (http://www.tmcnet.com/fraud.htm) on its page dedicated to cracking down on telemarketing fraud.

And for an AG’s view of what’s important on the Web, be sure to check out their page of important links (http://www.naag.org/links.htm), including one to the National District Attorneys Association (http://www.ndaa.org/).
