SAN DIEGO, Calif., (March 6, 2023) – San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is providing educational resources for the community in support of National Consumer Protection Week, March 5-11. On Wednesday, March 8, SDCCU will present two free webinars aimed at educating the community on how to keep themselves, their loved ones and their finances safe. Webinar topics include Current Scams and How to Protect Your Finances, and Elder Financial Abuse Prevention.
“SDCCU is committed to educating the community on how to protect themselves against cybercriminals that are actively targeting them and their finances,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “It is essential to be informed and on alert for potential dangers to ensure financial security. SDCCU is pleased to supply these tools to aid in safeguarding the public.”
National Consumer Protection Week encourages the community to learn more about their consumer rights and how to keep themselves secure. The FTC has sponsored National Consumer Protection Week since 1998 and provides free resources to protect consumers from the latest scam tactics and other fraudulent crimes like identity theft.
