College Students have already gone back for the new year, but they should be starting to learn how finances work. Some college students are not ready to take up financial problems by themselves when they are just starting college, so it is important for them to know common sense things. Pamela Hernandez with the Better Business Bureau says in order to not get scammed, students should practice some good financial habits like checking their credit.
Hernandez says it starts with making sure your financial items are kept safe.
If you are shopping online, it’s always important to use a credit card.
It’s important for students to always look at their credit card and bank statements to make sure that there are no odd purchases. If you do see an odd purchase, you can go to BBB/scam tracker and report a scam, or you can call your bank.
