YORK – Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) and Representative Seth Grove (R-York) will host a representative from the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection during National Consumer Protection Week.
“We field many calls from concerned citizens with questions about potential scams and help them address those issues on a regular basis,” Phillips-Hill said. “Partnering with the Attorney General will allow local residents to get the questions they have answered and to learn more about how to best protect themselves and loved ones from any current and future scams.”
The local legislators will host a representative from the Attorney General’s office on Thursday, March 5 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Phillips-Hill’s local office, located at 6872 Susquehanna Trail South in Springfield Township.
“Scammers target people of all walks of life, but particularly prey on older Pennsylvanians. As a state lawmaker, ensuring consumers are protected from scammers is paramount,” Grove said. “However, there are steps residents can take to prevent from becoming a victim. I encourage residents to come to this event to learn more about how to be a protected consumer.”
The representative will be on-hand to inform constituents how to safeguard from fraud, identity theft and the latest scams.
Since 2017, the Bureau of Consumer Protection contributed over $5.1 million to Pennsylvanians through restitution and mediation savings. The Office of Attorney General fields approximately 25,000 consumer complaints per year.
