National Consumer Protection Week

The Ohio Attorney General is proud to join government and nonprofit organizations across the country to celebrate National Consumer Protection Week, each year during the first week of March.

National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) is a coordinated campaign that encourages consumers nationwide to take full advantage of their consumer rights and to make better-informed decisions. In honor of NCPW, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office partners with government and nonprofit organizations throughout the state to provide consumer workshops and events. At the events, you can receive free information on how to protect your privacy, manage your money, and avoid scams.
