Hispanic Heritage Month: Protecting Your Wallet

Whether you’re setting out on your own or teaching people about financial issues like making and saving money, using credit, or managing debt, it pays to have some everyday strategies.

Managing your finances takes time and effort – and can raise lots of questions. That’s why we’re hosting a Hispanic Heritage Month Twitter chat in Spanish this Thursday, September 26, at 1 p.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Pacific. FTC staff will be ready to take your questions –  in Spanish – about:

  • Getting your free credit report
  • Fixing errors on your credit report
  • Avoiding credit repair scams
  • Managing debt
  • Dealing with debt collectors
  • Avoiding money wiring scams

Submit your questions to @laFTC or use the hashtag #FTCcharla. You also can email us at hispanicoutreach@ftc.gov. If you can’t participate in the chat, visit consumidor.ftc.gov for lots of tips and information on how to protect your money.
