National Consumer Protection Week

Scammers are on the lookout for new deceptive tricks to line their pockets with your cash, and they’ll use every technique in their arsenal to lie, cheat, and bully their way into your pockets. It’s up to you to protect yourself and loved ones from these criminals, but you’re not alone in the fight.

This week is National Consumer Protection Week, a time dedicated to raising consumer awareness about the tactics scammers might use to steal your hard-earned money, and how to prevent them from doing it.

The Postal Inspection Service has developed the website http://deliveringtrust.com to provide you with the tools you need to defend yourself against fraud. The website contains detailed information on a variety of fraudulent schemes including foreign lottery and sweepstakes scams, elder fraud, and how to report fraud.

The Federal Trade Commission also has a website at http://ncpw.gov that contains free consumer protection education materials, articles on the latest scams, and links to helpful resources.
