Empower military families

Share this page

It’s no secret that servicemembers and their families face particular challenges and stresses. Scam artists are skilled at knowing exactly how to exploit those challenges. They’ll lie or try any trickery to make a grab for a servicemember’s cash. That’s why the FTC has teamed up with the Department of Defense, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Servicemember Affairs, and Military Saves on Military Consumer — a campaign to empower military and veteran communities with tips and tools to be informed consumers. Visit the Military Consumer site to get resources from more than 30 federal, state and municipal agencies, consumer advocacy and military support organizations that are committed to education about recognizing and avoiding fraud. 

Military Consumer Protection Day is July 15. Share Military Consumer with friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues. You might even want to host your own military consumer event. Use the promotional tools and free resources to get the word out. Be sure to be a part of the Military Consumer Twitter Town Hall on July 15 at 2:00p (EDT).  Follow us on Twitter: @MilConsumer and join the conversation at #MilConsumer.
