National Consumer Protection Week

This week we are posting research tips and information on consumer topics to mark National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW). The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) spearheads NCPW activities and provides more information on their website: National Consumer Protection Week, March 4-10, 2018. Attend a series of Facebook Live chats on consumer-oriented topics and keep up on their blog.

Consumer issues affect millions of people each year. Recently, the FTC released their 2017 summary of top consumer complaints. The top three categories included debt collection, identity theft (such as credit card or tax return fraud), and impostor scams.

Did you know that we have a number of print and online resources to help you research consumer law? Start with our legal topic page on Consumer Complaints to help you quickly find agency or assistance contacts. Our legal topics index provides quick access to a number of resources on debt collection, identity theft, fraud, and other issues. Email or call our library for help researching your consumer issue.

Thanks for joining us this week for quick, informative posts about consumer law. Tomorrow, get advanced search tips for the National Consumer Law Center's Digital Library, which is available to our library visitors.
