Financial Literacy: Facts vs. Fiction (Washington State Library)

The Federal Trade Commission protects consumers from unfair and deceptive business practices by filing lawsuits against scammers and distributing educational materials about how to avoid being scammed. Financial literacy is a key component in helping consumers recognize and prevent problems. FTC staff will discuss how to spot and avoid financial scams and how consumers and consumer advocates can access the FTC's free financial literacy materials. Topics covered will include using financial planning resources, obtaining credit and credit repair services, laws regulating debt relief and debt collection, and scams preying on vulnerable consumers. Many of the free resources are also available in Spanish.
