From our friends at the FTC:
National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) 2019 is just around the corner. This year, NCPW is March 3 – 9, 2019. That’s just about a month away, so now is the time to jump into planning.
During NCPW, government agencies and consumer protection groups band together to help people understand their consumer rights and make well-informed decisions about money. Want to join in? Here are some ideas:
- Protect family, friends and your community from scams. Order free materials to hand out in English or Spanish. Order by February 4th to ensure delivery by NCPW.
- Visit NCPW.gov. You’ll find a list of helpful tips and resources.
- Plan a consumer protection event in your community. NCPW.gov has a toolkit to help you get involved.
- Reach out to the military community. Our Military Consumer Toolkit can help get you started.
