consumer protection week

2017-ncpwThe first week in March is National Consumer Protection Week.  Federal and local offices of consumer protection help you understand your rights as a consumer and avoid scams.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) provides online resources that can help you with debt, credit and loans, charity authentication, advertising, identity theft, and buying a car or home. They also offer 215 free publications that you can order from their website.

The FTC maintains the federal Do Not Call list so you can stop getting telemarketing calls. They provide a way for you to stop getting credit card solicitations, too.

With so much information available online, it can be overwhelming to find what you need to make informed decisions about your money. The FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection can help you and your family avoid fraud and stay safer online.
