Top of my list are the endless phone calls. I know you know, but all day long my home line phone rings and now they’ve entered my cell phone. I’m on the do not call list. It’s especially upsetting when we have illnesses and emergencies in the family and are diligent about watching for calls.

I would like to know how to identify the scams!

How can we identify scammers and apprehend them.

What if I don't use Facebook or Twitter?

The blog post suggests you check out the main www.FTC.gov/NCPW page. The main page lists 90 city, state and federal agencies that are participating in NCPW. Maybe one of those 90 agencies is near you, or has an event planned that will interest you.

Done.

Thank you for being there to educate and protect for us consumers.
You have been a great provider of informations regards the rights of consumers.
We often do not know where and whom we can turn to, when we felt being scammed or cheated by Good and Service providers.
Knowing we have the FTC to consults or able to report, we have a peace of minds.

Thank You for the very useful information You provide

Thank you for this information. Looking forward to see some of the planned events

Allot of these scammers/fraudsters are 2nd & 3rd generation. Seems like the more we catch on to their game plain they become more savvy.

I do not use Twitter neither Facebook. Suggest other ways to participate. Thanks.
