Another 3 million
Another 3 million numbers from consumers who registered using the Internet aren't formally included on the list yet because consumers haven't responded to a required e-mail confirmation.
The FTC began taking registrations
Announcing the 10 million number this afternoon, the FTC's chairman, Timothy J. Muris, in somewhat of an understatement, called the response "enthusiastic."
Big surge on first day
The FTC did say that the registrations peaked Friday, with 7 million numbers entered into the registration process. The number dropped to 4.6 million on Saturday and 2 million on Sunday.
The FTC is taking registration on the Internet from anywhere in the U.S. and over the phone in the western half of the country. Phone registration opens in the East on July 7.
