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 the second annual Military Consumer Protection Day (MCPD) on July 16.
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 servicemembers, veterans and their families with information related to pocketbook issues.
The centerpiece of MCPD is a town hall/Twitter chat at 2:00 p.m. EST, July 16. To join the conversation, which is focused on identity theft and credit-related issues, submit questions using the hashtag #MCPD2014.
