FRAUD FORUM
The Fraud Forum will take place February 25 and 26. On the first day, law enforcement, consumer advocates, business representatives, and academics will examine the extent of fraud in the economy; how scammers learn the tools of their trade; who is at greatest risk of fraud; and what opportunities exist for improved self-regulatory efforts. The second day is open to domestic and international law enforcement officials only. A live webcast of this workshop will be available at http://www.ftc.gov. Send comments to fraudforum@ftc.gov. Press release: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/10/fraud.shtm.

TIP OF THE MONTH — NCPW 2009



National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) 2009, which takes place March 1-7, focuses on the tools for dealing with today’s economy and for making smart financial decisions. Information can help people get the most for their money, whether they are trying to stretch their paychecks, find a quick fix for a spotty credit history, or tell the difference between a real deal and a potentially fraudulent product or service. The NCPW site, http://www.consumer.gov/ncpw, offers free resources --- the nuts and bolts --- to share with your constituents.


The FTC and its NCPW partners are sponsoring an NCPW Information and Resources Fair on Thursday February 19, from 9:30 am to 11:00 am in the Rayburn Foyer, Rayburn House Office Building. Enjoy a light breakfast and meet staff from a variety of federal agencies and consumer groups which have free information about managing debt and credit, getting your free annual credit report, making decisions about mortgages, protecting personal information, and more. Pick up materials to distribute in your district and get ideas for town hall meetings, community programs, and newsletter articles. To learn more about the Fair, contact Derick Rill at drill@ftc.gov. Get more information about NCPW at http://www.consumer.gov/ncpw.
