Dollars and Sense: Rated A for All Ages
NATIONAL CONSUMER PROTECTION WEEK: Consumer Resources for All Ages
Scam Victims United is proud to announce that it has joined a group of federal, state, and local government agencies and national consumer organizations to launch the 12th annual National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 7-13, 2010.
NCPW 2010 — Dollars and Sense: Rated A for All Ages — highlights the importance of using good consumer sense at every stage of life – from grade school to retirement.
NCPW partners are promoting free resources to help people protect their privacy, manage money and debt, avoid identity theft, understand credit and mortgages, and steer clear of frauds and scams. In addition, NCPW partners are reaching out to kids, focusing on websites, videos and games designed for a younger audience.
