Attorney General Patrick Morrisey's Office Kicks Off Back to School Consumer Protection Week
Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 17:18 Updated 1 year ago From a News Release by WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey
Each day this week, our Office will send a new alert with information your readers and viewers can use to stay safe during the school year. Releases will focus on ways to avoid identity theft on campus, applying for and managing credit safely, and how to avoid becoming a victim of a scholarship scam. These alerts all will be available on our website, www.ago.wv.gov, on our Facebook page (facebook.com/AGWestV), and through Twitter, @WestVirginaAG.
“Many students have either already returned to the classroom or will return in the next few weeks. Additionally, thousands of young adults will be heading to college in the coming days. For some, college marks the first time they are on their own,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “Our Office’s hope is to provide these useful tips and scam alerts to get the school year started on the right foot.”
