Texas AG Unveils New Consumer Protection Website

National Consumer Protection Week is March 2-8, and the Texas Attorney General's Office and Attorney General Greg Abbot is putting a spotlight on consumer issues by launching a new website to improve Texans' access to educational resources regarding financial decisions.

The website, which can be found at www.texas.attorneygeneral.gov, provides numerous interactive resources, newsletters, consumer alerts, and news releases on consumer issues.

"Well-informed consumers are more likely to make thoughtful money management decisions, carefully use credit and build a solid financial foundation for their families," Attorney General Abbott said. "Whether they need guidance on buying a home or preventing identity theft, the Office of the Attorney General's recently redesigned Web site offers helpful information. We encourage all Texans to take advantage of this valuable online resource."
