LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A website kicks off a year-long effort to give military and veterans' communities resources to manage money, protect personal information, and avoid scams.
The effort started on July 17, which was declared Military Consumer Protection Day. The dedicated website, with information and resources, is available here.
A number of agencies are behind the campaign, including the Federal Trade Commission, the Defense Department, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Military Saves.
Together, these agencies want active-duty and retired service members, military families, veterans and civilians in the military community to use the free resources as the first line of defense against fraud and make better-informed decisions when managing money.
