CEI presents workshops

Teaching Massachusetts residents about how to be smarter consumers, protect their privacy and stay safe online is what Consumers Empowered strives to do every day.  And thanks to a grant from the Consumer Federation of America, this year we are able to direct our efforts towards helping adult basic learners and adults who speak languages other than English who might be unfamiliar with Massachusetts consumer laws. Recently, CEI presented workshops to students in ESL/ESOL and GED classes, including those at Blue Hills Adult Education GED program, Framingham Adult ESL Plus School and Stoughton ESOL program. Topics included basic rights when buying goods and services, recognizing deceptive business practices, protecting against identity theft, Internet safety and most importantly, where to go for help when problems occur. Check out Events for photos from past workshops and Contact Us to schedule a workshop for your organization.

What's on your mind?

Dear Consumer Gals,

I recently had a call from India and the man said his company was con-
nected with Microsoft. He had me turn on my com-
puter and directed me to an area that showed error messages. He wanted to take control of my computer remotely and fix it. Was this a scam?
