Consumer Protection

The Consumer Protection Committee educates the public on various scams and con games, including Identity Theft, that target citizens.

We publish monthly articles in "The Messenger", maintain a Consumer Protection information corner in Conway Hall at the Costick Center, and distribute information at Project Healthy Living and open houses as well as on cable shows.

A presentation of Identity Theft can be arranged for organizations by calling the COA telephone number at (248) 473•1895.
