Tune in to NCPW on Facebook Live, Twitter and a Podcast

New for National Consumer Protection Week 2017, the FTC will take part in a Facebook Live chat with USA.gov on Tuesday, March 7th at 2:30pm Eastern.

The Facebook Live chat will cover the ten things you can do to avoid fraud, and show you some of the free consumer education materials you can order for yourself, friends and family, and your community. Tune in next Tuesday and ask questions, if you have some.

FTC staff will also host a Twitter chat with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (@CTDCP) to answer consumer questions on March 8, 2017 beginning at 4:30 pm Eastern. Staff will answer questions on debt, identity theft, online safety, and other consumer protection topics. An additional Twitter chat will be held with the Colorado Attorney General’s office (@StopFraudCo) to answer consumer questions on March 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm Eastern. Acting FTC Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen and staff will answer questions on tax identity theft and imposter scams. To participate in both chats, follow @FTC, @milconsumer and Tweet questions with the hashtag #NCPW2017.

Also coming soon: an NCPW podcast with the Better Business Bureau. Stay tuned for more details!
