Welcome to the FTC's 12 Days of Consumer Protection, a holiday series to help you save money and avoid scams.
Each day, we'll cover a new topic - from shopping online and bogus shipping notifications to temporary job scams and fake charities. We'll give you practical information you can use every day and share with your family, friends, and community so they can be safe too.
This holiday season will look very different as we seek to spend (sometimes virtual) time with loved ones, while staying safe from COVID-19. Follow along with us to help you keep your money and information safe from scammers who want to cash in on holiday spending and giving. And then share the posts and the graphics with people you know.
Happy holidays from your friends at the FTC. We'll see you on the second day of Consumer Protection!
