PSC Reminds Broward County 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, and Thursday, March 5.  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.”
