It’s almost February and you know what that means…it’s getting close to National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW)! This year, NCPW is March 6-12, 2022, so now’s the time to jump into planning.
NCPW is the time of year when government agencies, consumer protection groups, and people like you work together to help remind your family, friends, and neighbors of their consumer rights and avoid frauds and scams. Want to join in? Here are some ideas:
- Help your family, friends and community avoid scams. Order free materials to share in English or Spanish. Order by February 7th to ensure delivery by NCPW.
- Plan a virtual consumer protection event. Find ideas at ftc.gov/ncpw for how to get involved.
- Share resources on COVID-19 scams. Share ways to avoid these scams, from COVID tests to vaccine scams. Check out ftc.gov/coronavirus/scams for free resources, including one-page handouts and graphics to share on social media.
- Visit ftc.gov/ncpw for even more resources.
We’ll be back next month to tell you more about the virtual events we have planned for NCPW. See you then.
