In recent conversations with personal finance reporters, Credit.com’s experts weighed in on how consumers can make smarter choices with credit cards and avoid being exploited by scam artists.
Credit.com’s Director of Consumer Education Gerri Detweiler spoke on a recent hot topic — the impact of social media on credit scores. Fortunately, as she told WTOP, it’s not something to worry about in the U.S. (@WTOP)
Credit.com’s Co-Founder and Chairman Adam Levin talked with ABC news about the dumb things people do with credit cards (@7OnYourSideNY), and he talked to NY1 about how to reverse credit card fees. (@TaraLynnWagner)
Adam was interviewed on NBC about scammers posing as government employees to dupe consumers (@TheConsumerman); he also offered a variation of this theme to WNBC: When fraudsters capitalize on the confusion surrounding Obamacare in order to steal personal information. (@LyndaBaquero4NY)
Adam also talked about the issue of identity theft among older Americans. AARP sought Adam’s advice about how to be careful when trading in a smartphone (@AARP), and Fox Business News interviewed him about the magnitude of senior citizen identity theft. (@KateRogersNews)
