Another scam everyone should be aware of is the Amway Tool Scam. Google
StopTheAmwayToolScam for more information, and forward this to every non-IBO you
know, so they don't get scammed.
Do they have any open seats available for this class?I know 536
people in Washington, DC, who desperately need to learn these basic financial
skills, and SOON!Well done to the legislature for requiring the
class, and for the schools to follow the law.
I have done a lot to help my children learn about how money works, to manage
money, spend it and invest it. I even bought an interesting board game that
teaches you about managing money. I recently purchased 2 copies of an
interesting book: for Children 'how to become’ Rich, successful &
do well in school. I believe parents should do more to help children
when it comes to finances. I remember getting bombarded by credit companies the
minute I turned 18.
What I wonder about is the girl wearing the big ring on her finger. Easily over
$1000. This is a high school junior. Sort of ironic to have a high school girl
wearing a massive ring in an article about saving money and being thrifty.
