At 1st Mariner, keeping our customers educated about identity theft and other fraud scams is always a top priority.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC)’s educational campaign, Pass It On, takes things a step further. The campaign was created to encourage consumers to not only educate themselves about consumer protection issues, but to pass on the information to others.
The campaign is targeted to the older generation since this age group is a common target demographic, and the consequences can be more severe to these people. The idea is to allow older people to become part of the solution to the growing problem of consumer fraud, not just the victims.
However, the information the FTC provides is useful to people of all ages, as anyone can become a victim of a scam. Click here to visit the Pass It On page where you can find articles, activities, presentations and bookmarks – all for free. How can you tell if you’re paying too much on your bills? How do you spot a heath care scam? This information and much more can be found on the Pass It On page. The only thing asked of you is that you then do your part by passing it on to someone else.
