National Consumer Protection Week!

Welcome to National Consumer Protection Week!
Let’s use this week to talk about what is happening to consumers in the U.S. as we speak.

For National Consumer Protection Week 2017, the FTC will take part in a Facebook Live chat with USA.gov on Tuesday, March 7th at 11:30 a.m Pacific time.

The Facebook Live chat will cover the ten things you can do to avoid fraud, and show you some of the free consumer education materials you can order for yourself, friends and family, and your community.
The just-released 2016 Consumer Sentinel Data Book shows, imposter scams, debt collection and identity theft remain the top consumer complaints. Through NCPW.gov, consumers encourage people to use the free consumer education materials to learn about scams and protect themselves year long.
In the military? check out Military.consumer.gov – a mobile-friendly financial readiness tool that helps service members and their families stay mission-ready at home and abroad.

Stay involved and informed about consumer protection! Join National Consumer Protection advocates tomorrow for a NCPW Facebook Live chat. You also can tune in to an NCPW podcast with the Better Business Bureau, or drop by one of the two Twitter chats later this week where the Acting FTC Chairman, along with other FTC staff, will be on hand to take your questions.
