SHENANDOAH VALLEY, Va. - This is National Consumer Protection Week and if you happen to come by something that seems suspicious to you, there's a website can help.

If you visit www.ncpw.gov, you'll find a variety of information such as red flags to watch out for, tips for playing it safe, along with information on the most common schemes out there now.

We spoke to Jason Clark, a Compliance Officer with Dupont Community Credit Union, who told us there are many ways to protect yourself.

"Checking your account balance frequently, signing up for online banking is a great way to keep track of all of your transaction information without having to make a trip to the credit union, but really taking advantage of some of those electronic conveniences that can help you keep an eye on your account."

Clark says the best way most kinds of fraud can be prevented is by simply keeping a close eye on your personal information.
