The Attorney General's Office Consumer Protection Division Director, Karen Meyers, was a guest this past Saturday on the Women's Focus radio program on KUNM 89.9 FM.
She discussed a number of important consumer issues and schemes, some of which target women in New Mexico. For example, research shows that women, particularly women of color, bore the brunt of risky sub-prime lending practices during the last decade.
Meyers gave listeners tips on how to avoid unscrupulous schemes that take advantage of consumers. She also answered calls from listeners; discussed New Mexico consumer laws; and described warning signs that consumers should look for to protect themselves from scammers. She also explained how people can file a consumer complaint with the Attorney General's Office.
