Groups nationwide share tips and information that help consumers protect their privacy, manage money and debt, and avoid identity theft, fraud, and scams. Starting on Mondayand running through Friday, the AG’s office will issue daily consumer alerts to Nevadans.
“The message of National Consumer Protection Week is simple: It’s never too late to become an engaged and more informed consumer,” said Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. “My office is pleased to participate in this important event to better inform Nevadans so they can avoid falling victim to scams.”
More information about the week is also available at www.ncpw.gov. Consumer Protection information can also be found on the AG’s website (http://ag.state.nv.us), the Nevada Fight Fraud website (http://fightfraud.nv.gov)and the Federal Trade Commission website (www.ftc.gov).
Nevada consumers who believe they are a victim of fraud are encouraged to contact law enforcement, including the local police department, Federal Trade Commission, Better Business Bureau, and the AG’s Office.
