Identity Theft Resource Center Celebrates 15th Annual National Consumer Protection Week

(San Diego, CA)-- (3/5/2013) - The Identity Theft Resource Center is joining government agencies, advocacy organizations and private sector groups nationwide to celebrate National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 3-9, 2013. For the past 15 years, a broad coalition has worked together to share tips and information about privacy protection, money and debt management, and recognizing identity theft, frauds and scams.

This year, ITRC will focus on resources available to consumers which they can use to protect themselves from identity theft, scams and related issues. The ITRC will be hosting an online Twitter Chat on Thursday, March 7th at 11:00am PST. Anyone can join the chat and provide resources to consumers by following @ITRCSD on Twitter and using the hashtag #IDTheftChat. The public is invited to engage in the activity, as well, to find helpful resources to protect themselves.

"Social networking has become a wonderful tool for connecting the general public with helpful information" says Nikki Junker, Social Media Manager at the Identity Theft Resource Center. "It is our hope that this event, in line with the goals of National Consumer Protection Week, will provide helpful information to consumers not just in our area, but nationwide."
