Are you looking for a job? Thinking about buying a car or a home? Applying for credit? Before you do, get – and review – a copy of your credit report. The information in your credit report can affect whether you get a job, a loan, or the terms or cost of a loan. You want to be sure the information about you is correct, complete and up-to-date.
For 13 years, the DSEF has been proud to partner with the FTC and other organizations to offer a wide array of education events and resources that encourage consumers nationwide to take full advantage of their rights and make better-informed decisions.
You’ll find a wealth of resources at www.ncpw.gov that will help you protect your privacy, manage your money, learn more about credit and debt, decipher advertising messages, and steer clear of fraud and scams.
Please take a moment to share the resources on this Web site with others in your communities and companies and, together, we’ll help build a nation of better-informed and educated consumers.
