Happy National Consumer Protection Week, everyone! As a member of NCPW’s steering committee, NCL joined other consumer advocacy organizations and government agencies in planning this year's events focused on financial literacy. This is a timely topic, just look at the news reports on the credit crunch. Consumers need greater access to the resources and educational tools to help them make savvy financial decisions. NCL offers tips to help consumers make well-informed financial decisions, avoid being defrauded, and report scams. Check back here later this week for the tips and resources that NCL offers to help consumers of all ages manage their finances wisely.
