1.5 minutes can save you…a heap of trouble!

We’ve all heard the ads saying that 15 minutes can save you 15%. Some ads claim to save you more in even less time. Well, the FTC can save you lots of headaches in about a minute and a half. We recently released new short videos explaining the basics about three topics that affect millions of us:

Renting an apartment or a house


Car title loans


Recovering from identity theft


But wait, there’s more! For the low, low introductory price of…well…nothing, you can find even more videos and information at consumer.gov. It’s just what you need to know – and what you need to do – about managing your money, protecting your credit, managing your debt, and dealing with identity theft.

We hope these resources are helpful – and if they are, feel free to share. You can grab and share the consumer.gov videos – post them on your own website or blog, share on social media. And order free consumer.gov materials, in English and Spanish, to hand out at work, school, club, or wherever else people might need consumer protection basics, plain and simple.


Now this is something I would be a part of.

Really funny!
