Event Description

New America Media & the Federal Trade Commission invite you to an ethnic media news briefing:

Every year scammers defraud our communities of hundreds of millions of dollars by selling fake services and worthless products for everything from immigration, housing and health to debt collection, jobs and education. People are often too scared to report fraud when they have been victimized by it. Our briefing will bring together law enforcement officials, community advocates and consumers to talk about the types of fraud that are on the rise and what people can do to protect themselves and their neighbors. This briefing is sponsored by the Federal Trade Commission, which protects consumers from fraud through law enforcement and education.

Members of the media can RSVP to Summer Chiang at or call 415-503-4170 ext: 126
