The Consumer Handbook is intended to help you become a better-informed and more confident consumer. It offers information on a wide range of topics such as online shopping, contracts, housing and home renovations, identity theft, collection agencies, and much more, to help you build your buying skills.
Knowing what’s on offer in today’s marketplace and whether it suits your needs –in other words being a well informed consumer – is key to protecting yourself. Critically examine product and service offerings before purchasing to make sure there are no unexpected or negative implications. Always remember – if it seems too good to be true, it usually is.
