On February 28, the FTC issued a statement to promote the 19th annual National Consumer Protection Week to be held March 5-11, 2017, in partnership with more than 100 agencies at the federal, state, and local level, as well as consumer groups and national advocacy organizations. The week is a nationally-coordinated campaign dedicated to the mission of “informing Americans of their consumer rights while providing them access to free consumer-related resources.” Activities include a Facebook live video stream where FTC staff will answer questions about fraud prevention, Twitter chats with both the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection and the Colorado Attorney General’s office, as well as numerous events across the country geared towards promoting consumer education.
