As Amy Kleinschmit mentioned in her Compliance Update on Friday, the Federal Trade Commission along with many federal, state, and local agencies, consumer groups, and national advocacy organizations, will participate in the 23rd annual National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) February 28 – March 6, 2021.
NCPW is a coordinated campaign designed to focus on the importance of keeping consumers informed while providing them with free resources explaining their rights in the marketplace. This information is valuable to credit unions and credit union members, and we encourage you to share these helpful resources.
This year, the FTC and its partners will also participate in a series of events including webinars, Facebook Live events, and Twitter chats throughout the week. These virtual events will cover a range of topics, including avoiding coronavirus scams, government imposters, and cyber fraud.
