The 15th annual National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) is March 3 - 9. Government agencies, advocacy organizations, and private sector groups from coast to coast have come together here to share information that can help you make smart decisions about a slew of subjects, including privacy protection, money and debt management, and recognizing identity theft, frauds and scams.
We hope you’ll be part of this nationwide campaign: Share the resources on this site with your families, your friends, and your colleagues. Use the ideas and tools– from brochures and fact sheets to videos, audio recordings and games - to create your own consumer education activity or event. Post buttons and banners on your site to let visitors know where to get more information about NCPW and dozens of current consumer topics.
By the way, the Federal Trade Commission coordinates NCPW. Its free publications are available from ftc.gov/bulkorder, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. But mark your calendar: if you’re planning an activity or event during NCPW 2013 and you want publications to distribute, you’ll need to place your order by February 1, 2013.
National Consumer Protection Week happens once a year. But we hope you’ll bookmark this site, visit us often, and make consumer protection and consumer education priorities for action every day.
