Join the U.S. Postal Service for National Consumer Protection Week February 5-11, 2006.

Fighting Fraud: It's a Family Matter.

When your grandparents are taken in by a fraudulent investment, your mom loses money to an illegal foreign lottery, or your son or daughter falls for a bogus job offer, who gets victimized? The entire family.

That's why the U.S. Postal Service® Consumer Advocate's Office and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are partnering to educate American families about fraudulent schemes and equip them with tools to protect themselves from scammers. Educated families are the best defense against criminal fraud.

I invite you to join them from February 5 through 11, 2006, for National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) and learn about these common types of fraud:
  • Foreign lotteries

  • Free-prize schemes

  • Investment schemes

  • Multilevel marketing

  • Work-at-home scams

  • Identity fraud (or identity theft)

  • Internet fraud (and online auctions)
