Staten Island Business Bank Helps Spread Word of Military Consumer Protection Day

 

Are you a service member or Veteran? Victory State Bank  wants you to know that today – July 16 -- is the second annual Military Consumer Protection Day (MCPD).

The Federal Trade Commission, along with more than 30 public and private sector organizations, are collaborating to provide military consumers with free resources about managing their money, avoiding scams, and dealing with identity theft in celebration of today’s event.

MCPD is part of Military Consumer, a year-round campaign hosted by the FTC, the Department of Defense, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Military Saves, and other consumer advocacy and military support organizations to empower and engage service members, Veterans and their families with information related to pocketbook issues. 

The centerpiece of MCPD is a town hall/Twitter chat today at 2 p.m.

To join the conversation, which is focused on identity theft and credit-related issues, submit questions using the hashtag #MCPD2014. Visit Military Consumer to learn more about the ongoing campaign, subscribe to the blog, and more.
