Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has officially launched the Patriot Protection Week Campaign in recognition of National Military Consumer Protection Month.

The new campaign, announced on Monday, will be offering tips and resources directly to Florida service members and veterans on Twitter. Moody will also be releasing her new Military Consumer Protection Guide, which will contain helpful information about potential scams that target military members, veterans and their families.

· Beware of scammers using misleading photos or language to imply association with a branch of the U.S. Military

· Verify the authenticity of an email or text that appears to be from a military branch. Phishing schemes use manipulated messages that appear to be from a military branch or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in an effort to target service members, veterans or family members

· Ensure any veterans charity soliciting funds is registered with the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at

· Place an active duty alert on credit reports at no cost. An active duty alert requires businesses to take additional steps before granting credit in the name of active duty personnel serving overseas
