Share the National Consumer Protection Week video

National Consumer Protection Week — March 2-8 this year — is a time to highlight free consumer resources that help people avoid scams, prevent identity theft and make more informed buying decisions. Just in time for this 16th annual celebration, here’s a new video, available in the NCPW Toolkit, to help you get the word out about the week to your network of colleagues, neighbors, friends and family.

This 60-second video provides an overview of what the week is all about. It is ideal to include on your website or social media page or to download and show at any event — community or club meetings, school gatherings, conferences… you name it! There are lots of other items you can use to build awareness of your consumer education activities during NCPW or any time of the year.



To all the people who helped me and have empathy , I can't thank you enough. I couldn't have done it with out you. Believe me , I tried and the job the scammers did on me along with US Bank was literally killing me. Too many people don't fight back , there are strength in numbers! All I could think was , what gives these people the right to take food off my child's plate ,clothing off her back and a safe place to live? I asked the people of wyzemoney this question and the next thing I know the was a man in front of my home with a gun taking 16 shots at me. This person was caught but a person with the same last name appears on my Facebook with a conversation I didn't participate in. Is this a coincidence ? Highly unlikely, if you knew the name. I guess some one doesn't want me to persue taking what's mine and my life back. Tough, I will fight for my rights and what I earned till the death. And if possible hopefully put e few behind bars. What kind of person wipes out the financial security of the elderly. The lowest form of nothing that should walk on earth. If half the effort was put to good use,they would still make a great living . And the banks let this happen.
