National Association of Attorneys General Recognizes National Consumer Protection Week March 2-8

Attorneys General across the country are preparing for National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 2-8, 2008, in an effort to highlight the importance of consumer protection and education efforts around the country.

This year's theme, "Financial Literacy, a Sound Investment," encourages people from coast to coast to master the financial facts of life. Financially savvy consumers are likely to make smarter decisions about managing their money, using credit wisely, and building a solid financial foundation for later.

Consumers conduct some type of financial transaction requiring an educated decision every day: shopping for a mortgage or auto loan; understanding and reconciling credit card statements and telephone bills; choosing savings and retirement plans; comparing health insurance policies; understanding their credit report and how that affects their ability to get credit and at what cost; or simply deciding how to pay for a purchase. Education is the first line of defense for consumers to manage their money wisely and protect themselves from frauds or rip-offs.
