Cash or Credit; Avoiding Debt Disaster!

Do you ever see your credit card statement and wonder how you spent all that money in one month?! Does that happen monthly?? Join us for this informative financial literacy presentation entitled, Paper or Plastic: Avoiding Debt Disaster!

Borrowing money doesn't usually conjure thoughts of anxiety or fear, but often borrowers end up with debt "horror stories". The first area that many individuals get tripped up with is a credit card. In this session you will learn about the good and the bad of credit cards - rewards, interest, fees, limits and more. Find out how to use a credit card to establish your credit history, stay out of debt, and use credit the right way. You will also find out about some of the consequences of a debt disaster such as bankruptcy, judgments, and garnishments.

This is a workshop you do not want to miss! The session is being presented by a Consumer Credit Counseling Services representative, and will be held in room 400 of the Downtown Campus on Wed, Oct 30th at noon. Refreshments will be served. Hope to see you there!
