Meet Consumer Ed
The Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs has created a special web site – www.ConsumerEd.com – designed to help Georgians become smarter consumers.
Created especially with young adults in mind, the website has a colorful, dynamic design featuring a friendly, redheaded guide named Consumer Ed, who walks consumers through major purchasing and financial decisions, such as buying a car, purchasing a house, renting an apartment, dealing with credit and debt, managing money, and avoiding foreclosure.
In addition to comprehensive information in key topic areas (Car, Home, Credit & Debt, Finances 101), the site features current consumer news, financial calculators, and the option to join a Consumer Alert List, whereby subscribers can have important consumer news emailed to them each month.
ConsumerEd.com is a valuable tool that can help consumers learn to make wise purchasing and financial decisions, know their rights, and avoid becoming victims of scams or deceptive practices in the marketplace.
