The NAACP and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) want to ensure that you have the information you need to file a complaint with the FTC, protect yourself against scams and make informed buying decisions in the marketplace.
The webpage at www.ftc.gov/naacp, designed specifically for NAACP members and supporters, includes links to downloadable publications, videos and other materials that you can use to advance your units' education and financial literacy programs. Topics include identity theft, online safety, mortgage rescue scams, credit and debt, phone fraud, medical/healthcare fraud and much more.
I am available to answer your questions about these materials and the site. I also value your feedback and would love to get a response from you about the site. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
