We’ve seen it time and again. Once people are informed of their options, they become empowered to flex their financial muscle, so to speak. Jay Goss, EVP of business development at Debt.com.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Debt.com is joining government agencies and organizations to promote consumer education during National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), happening now through March 12, 2011.
Created by the Federal Trade Commission, NCPW is a coordinated effort to protect consumers through information about privacy, managing money and debt, and avoiding frauds and scams.
According to the Federal Reserve, the total US consumer debt currently stands at $2.4 trillion, or roughly $7,800 of debt for every American. Debt.com helps consumers digest these numbers by serving as a trusted online destination where people can go to exercise financial fitness.
The site provides objective tools, resources and coverage on things like managing debt, tax planning, loans and credit, often in the form of “Pig Tales” from the site’s buff piggy bank mascot. And since shopping is inevitable, Debt.com offers modern tips and a portal of daily deals to help consumers save money by shopping smart.
“We’ve seen it time and again. Once people are informed of their options, they become empowered to flex their financial muscle, so to speak.” said Jay Goss, EVP of business development at Debt.com. “We’re glad to support the efforts of National Consumer Protection Week.”
