Better Business Bureau joins government partners for Consumer Protection Event

 

Chicago, IL – Consumer protection information and brochures will be among the free items available from the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois (BBB) from 8:30AM to 3:00PM on March 8, 2012, in the lobby of the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph St. in Chicago, as the BBB joins federal, state, and local government agencies and national consumer advocacy organizations in the 14th annual National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 4-10, 2012.

 

National Consumer Protection Week focuses on giving consumers the tools they need to make smart financial decisions in today’s marketplace.  This information can help people get the most for their money, whether they are trying to stretch their paychecks, find a quick fix for a spotty credit history, or distinguish the difference between a real deal and a potentially fraudulent product or service. 

 

“The Better Business Bureau is proud to be part of this year’s National Consumer Protection Week campaign,” said Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “In times like these, information is one commodity that retains its value.  We invite everyone to visit www.bbb.org for tools they can use to make smart choices in the marketplace.”
