Beyond Black Friday: 5 Resources to Help Students Spend Responsibly
Date/Time: November 18, 2020, On-Demand
Financial Literacy and Holiday Spending
Studies show that children and young adults are among the most vulnerable groups when it comes to identity theft, online scams and fraud. In fact, Experian recently found that “child identity fraud or theft will affect 25% of kids before turning 18.”
With the holidays coming up and peer-to-peer virtual payment apps becoming more and more popular, it is essential that we equip young people with the tools they need to spend and send responsibly. Students need critical financial literacy skills like the most effective ways to budget their money, how to stay secure online, and how to be sure that their use of virtual transaction apps is not leaving them open to fraud risks.
