So what exactly is National Consumer Protection Week? It's a whole entire week dedicated to making sure that every consumer is aware of risks, and informed about what they are doing with their identity and money.

The City of New Bedford is also getting involved in this, and if you have a complaint about a particular office or organization - this is the week to do something about it.

So how do you issue a complaint? it's easy. You can do it right on the City of New Bedford's website. You can also call 508-961-3020 or 508-979-1464. You can also email consumer@newbedford-ma.gov
