PSC Reminds South Florida Consumers to “Stay Protected” for National Consumer Protection Week

TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) is teaming up with the Jacksonville Jaguars to remind consumers to “Suit Up and Stay Protected” against scammers during National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 1–7. “No football player would ever take the game field without his uniform and protective gear,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “Consumers, too, should ‘suit up’ with education and information to recognize fraud and protect identity, bank and billing accounts, and property.”

To help consumers stay protected by staying informed, PSC staff will make presentations on Wednesday, March 4 in LaBelle and Punta Gorda.  Consumers will also receive tips on energy and water conservation and information about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program.  By staying informed, consumers can “tackle fraud.” 

The events are scheduled for the following times and locations:

Wednesday, March 4, 2015
10:30 a.m.
L. J. Nobles Senior Center
475 E. Cowboy Way
LaBelle, FL  33935
