National Consumer Protection Week March 4-10
During NCPW, groups nationwide share tips and information that help consumers protect their privacy, manage money and debt, avoid identity theft, and avoid frauds and scams. This year, the Consumers’ Council will be hosting three information sharing events so residents can meet the Consumers' Council staff and learn about the Council’s different initiatives for the year. Consumers can also speak with staff members about problems they are encountering in the marketplace, learn about the Council’s free mediation program and pick up educational material concerning various consumer topics! Join us at the following information sharing events:
Monday, Mar. 5, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Central Square Post Office, 770 Massachusetts Ave.
Wednesday, Mar. 7, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Porter Square Post Office, 1953 Massachusetts Ave.
Thursday, Mar. 8, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Harvard Square Post Office, 125 Mount Auburn St.
Finally, we will be ending NCPW by offering free public shredding Saturday, Mar. 10, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., at Cambridge City Hall, 795 Massachusetts Ave. A reception will begin at 10 a.m. on the first floor of City Hall. Local officials from the Consumers' Council, Executive Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation, the U.S. Postal Service and the Postal Customer Council of Greater Boston will be helping residents safely dispose of unwanted records and documents. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Corey R. Pilz at 617-349-6154 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
