This week is the 11th annual National Consumer Protection Week. The National Consumer Protection Week was launched by the Federal Trade Commission and its partners to highlight consumer education efforts.
Consumer protection news and information
The information on the National Consumer Protection Week website is designed to help people stay informed about changes in the financial industry, how to improve their credit history and score, avoid identity theft and fraud, understand more about investments and investment scams, protect their mortgage from foreclosure or foreclosure rescue scams, and understand their consumer rights and how to report crimes or file complaints with the appropriate government agency.
Consumer Protection Tools
One of the cool features about the National Consumer Protection website is that it doesn’t look or function like your traditional drab government website. A lot of thought and work went into making the website easy on the eyes and easy to use.
But the look and functionality are only a small part of the site. The tools and information are what matter most. There are numerous tools, calculators, videos, audio downloads, brochures in PDF format, website links, and other information sources to help you find what you are looking for.
For more information about these items, I encourage you to visit the following pages:
- Consumer Rights.
- Identity Theft & Fraud.
Bookmark and share this resource
I encourage you to check out this website to get a quick understanding of what it has to offer. But the sheer number of tools and resources would make it difficult to learn everything at once, so I recommend bookmarking this resource so you can refer back to it later.
