AG Schmidt to host national consumer protection conference in Wichita

WICHITA – (October 25, 2013) – Wichita will be the site of next week’s National Association of Attorneys General Fall Consumer Protection Seminar, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

The conference will bring staff from the consumer protection offices of 46 states and territories to the Hyatt Regency in Wichita for a three-day seminar.

“Protecting consumers from scams and rip-offs is a top priority for the Kansas attorney general’s office,” said Schmidt, who serves as co-chair of the Consumer Protection Committee for the national organization. “Bringing this national conference to Wichita in order to share best practices and experiences among the states underscores the importance we place on protecting Kansans’ pocketbooks.”

Sessions will focus on topics such as mobile phone cramming, military consumer protection, identity theft and data breaches. The conference begins Sunday afternoon and runs through Wednesday morning. Most sessions are for law enforcement officials only, but select sessions are open to members of the public who are registered for the conference. More information is available at www.naag.org.

The Office of Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett also will be participating in the conference. Schmidt and Bennett plan a news conference for 11:30 a.m. Tuesday to discuss cooperative consumer protection efforts between the Attorney General’s office and the District Attorney’s office.
