Consumer Advisory Project Provides Students with Valuable Lessons

Student In Free Enterprise (SIFE) presented a Consumer Advisory Project that reached out to Truman students, educating them about the common scams in which they may become victims and providing helpful prevention tips. The student-tailored presentation covered topics from online shopping scams, identity theft, scholarship scams, e-mail scams, phishing, online job scams, and credit card scams. Most topics revolved around the Internet as online commerce increases.

During the last week of February, SIFE joined four hall senates (Ryle, Dobson, Grim and Missouri) during their weekly meetings to deliver the presentation. SIFE also made a presentation during an Alpha Sigma Alpha meeting.
