CUNA DSEF debut consumer protection video for NCPW
MADISON, Wis. (3/9/12)--In recognition of National Consumer Protection Week, the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) is providing links on its website to online resources created by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

One video is designed to help small-business owners recognize specific types of fraud.

Six scams businesses should watch out for include:

1. Directory scams;

2. Supply scams;

3. Overpayment scams;

4. Data breaches;

5. Award scams; and

6. Phishing e-mails.
 

DSEF also linked to three online short courses designed by CUNA with audio and visual materials to help consumers reach their financial goals. The topics of the courses are breaking the debt cycle, saving for retirement and budget basics.
