National Consumer Protection Week focuses on giving consumers the tools they need to make smart financial decisions in today’s marketplace. Information can help people get the most for their money, whether they are trying to stretch their paychecks, find a quick fix for a spotty credit history, or tell the difference between a real deal and a potentially fraudulent product or service.
National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) partner organizations have tips on a wide range of topics, from how to get a free credit report to how to spot a telemarketing scam, from how to deal with debt to how to deter and detect identity theft, from how to avoid home and auto repair scams to how to file a consumer complaint with the appropriate authorities.
Consumers can access resources, including radio PSAs, videos, websites and more from topics including Banking, Credit, Consumer Rights, Identity Theft & Fraud, Investments, Money and Mortgages. Those resources are located here.
