FDIC Consumer Newsletter Features Tips on Banking in a High-Tech World

Other topics include debt collection, branch closings, bank mergers, and buying a CD from a broker

New technology can dramatically change the way that people manage and save money.  To help consumers learn more about banking in a high-tech world, the Spring 2013 issue of FDIC Consumer News features practical tips on how to reap the benefits and avoid potential problems.  Other timely topics include dealing with debt collectors, finding affordable small loans, thinking about your options after a branch closing or a bank merger, and taking precautions before buying a bank certificate of deposit (CD) from a deposit broker instead of directly from a financial institution.
