Dear Abby: Avoid becoming a victim of a scam by getting free Financial Self-Defense Kit - By Jeanne Phillips

DEAR ABBY: Making wise decisions about what to do with your money can be tough. Insurance policies, mortgages and investment plans come with so much terminology and fine print. The phone calls, email messages and mail offers for products and services are endless, and some are downright dishonest. It seems as if there’s a scammer — or an opportunity to make the wrong financial decision — around every corner.

To help your readers sort out the offers for products and financial services that come their way,, the federal government’s official website, has created a Free Financial Self-Defense Kit. It contains a dozen publications that explain how to make solid investment, shopping and credit decisions. And it’s also filled with advice on protecting your consumer rights, and recognizing and avoiding scams, especially those aimed at seniors.

Abby, thank you for sharing this empowering kit with your readers. Armed with the information, they’ll be better prepared and feel more confident facing financial choices. — Sarah Crane, Acting Director, Federal Citizen Information Center

DEAR SARAH: Frankly, I should be thanking you for giving me the opportunity to share this valuable information with my readers. I thought the kit you produced last year was wonderful, but this one is even better.
