National Consumer Protection Week
Consumers need useful and timely information to help them make solid decisions about their money and protect against fraud. In observance of National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) 2015, which is March 1-7, the FDIC is highlighting the agency’s resources for consumers on banking topics such as mortgages, credit and prepaid cards, and identity theft on our new Consumer Assistance & Information webpage.
