03/14/2014 National Consumer Protection Week Shred Event Scheduled for Saturday March 15

National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) is a federal program designed to highlight current issues and help customers improve their ability to combat fraud.

During NCPW, federal, state, and local consumer protection agencies, together with consumer organizations and industry associations, launch consumer protection and education efforts around the country.

On March 15, 2014, the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Portland Police Bureau are sponsoring a shred event at the Portland Police Bureau's Southeast Precinct, located at 4735 East Burnside Street.

The event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or until the truck is filled.

Consumers can bring up to two boxes or bags of documents to be shredded.

This year, the Postal Service and the Postal Inspection Service are partnering with AARP, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people 50 and older, to educate consumers about foreign lottery schemes that target older Americans.

The goals for NCPW are:

* Increase the awareness of older Americans and their caregivers about the dangers of foreign lottery schemes.
* Give consumers valuable information about protecting their assets from fraudsters.
* Provide a central location where consumers can report suspected fraud.*-..
