MA AG Martha Coakley’s Office Offers Resources and Outreach Events to Assist in Obtaining Good Consumer Health

Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley’s office has prepared several outreach events during NCPW to provide consumers with helpful information and materials. If you are interested in attending, please view our NCPW webpage for additional details. 

Other helpful resources that can assist consumers can be found on MA Attorney General’s website.  These include the Veterans' Resource Guide and the Savvy Senior Guide. The first is a publication where consumers can find information about resources available to veterans, military service members, and their families. The guide along with a wealth of other veteran resource information can be found at:  http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/your-rights/veterans-resources/

There has been great concern over the alarmingly fast-growing trend in elder fraud and the  increasing number of financially-victimized elders. While the Attorney General’s Office prosecutes many companies and individuals that are committing these crimes, unfortunately fraud cannot be totally eliminated.   As such, the Savvy Senior Guide helps consumers protect themselves and their loved ones. The guide along with other information can be found at:  http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/consumer-information/resources-for-elders/

For additional information regarding Attorney General Martha Coakley’s efforts to inform consumers about ways to make informed decisions to avoid becoming victims of fraud, please see the press release on celebrating NCPW.

One thing I have learned is that if you get A contest envelope about A sweepstakes you can win 1 million
or more but you must pay 9.99 or 12.99 for 3 million it is definitely A scam or if you are told you have to order magazines and they want you to listen to more stuff they found for you but you should take it because for A fee you can have these things don't do it its more than likely A Scam to sell products and you may be lucky to get those and other products you get 400.00 worth of products at A discount and pay 10.00 A month I feel its A lie and you never really win anything . thanks Scary Movie II
