Participate in FTC Social Media Events During National Consumer Protection Week

National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) will be commemorated on March 3–9, 2019. NCPW is a time to help people understand their consumer rights and make well-informed decisions about money.

During NCPW, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and its partners will provide information and advice on scams, identity theft, and other consumer protection issues.

OVC is excited to announce that on March 8, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. e.t., the FTC will host a Twitter chat with the OVC-funded Identity Theft Resource Center on tax identity theft. Learn strategies to protect yourself by following along using the #NCPW2019 hashtag.
