Hi AntoniaMaria,

You've certainly come to the right place to get started! More than 70 consumer protection agencies and organizations, NCPW partners, offer a vast array of resources on this site to educate people about scams and help them be more informed consumers overall. If you'd like to get the word out to your network, please share the link to this site and liberally use the resources available here. There is also a toolkit you can use to promote NCPW as well as your own consumer protection event - any time of the year.

Thanks for your interest in educating consumers!
