Provides Advice on Debt, Employment, and Avoiding Scams
The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, has a new Web site at ftc.gov/MoneyMatters for people dealing with debt; struggling to find a job; or trying to create a budget, save, and spend wisely during these difficult times.
Money Matters offers short, practical tips, videos, and links to reliable resources for more information on topics like credit repair, debt collection, job-hunting and jobs scams, vehicle repossession, managing mortgage payments, and foreclosure rescue scams.
To learn more, go to www.ftc.gov/MoneyMatters.
The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC’s online Complaint Assistant or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 1,500 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The FTC’s Web site provides free information on a variety of consumer topics.
