Be savvy with consumer education workshops

December 27, 2016
The Spokane County Library in partnership with Better Business Bureau Northwest presents consumer education workshops on topics from financial literacy, to smart shopping, to avoiding scams. Kirstin Davis of the BBB leads these workshops and informative presentations, all geared for adults and two especially important for teens.
How much research and consideration are needed for big purchases, such as college, a car, or a house? What tricks do scammers use to get you to hand over your money? Can you spot all of the red flags of a scam? Are your personal devices secure enough?
During January through April, learn savvy ways to shop smarter, stay safe from scammers, and protect sensitive information while online.
