| No Comments | No TrackBacks
National Consumer Protection Week is a coordinated campaign comprised of more than 60 federal, state and local agencies, consumer groups and national advocacy organizations. The advocacy efforts are focused on helping consumers understand their rights, while sharing information and encouraging action.
As part of this effort to raise awareness and respond to the needs of consumers, the FTC announced their participation in a Twitter chat (see below) and the launch of the website where consumers can find key information and resources designed to help them understand their rights, protect their privacy, avoid identity theft, recognize scams, manage their credit and debt, and even report fraud. 

TWITTER CHAT: The FTC staff will host a Twitter Chat with the U.S. General Services Administration to answer consumer questions on March 6, 2013, at 2 p.m. ET. The staff will answer questions for 60 minutes on debt, identity theft, online safety, and other consumer protection topics.  To participate in English, follow @FTC and Tweet questions with the hashtag #NCPW. For Spanish, follow @LaFTC and use #FTCcharla.

2013 marks the 15th celebration of National Consumer Protection Week. To get materials and to view a full list of participating agencies visit the NCPW website
