The Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) — a consumer advocacy division of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) — has released the 2008 edition of its Consumer Action Handbook. The handbook is designed to empower consumers to interact productively with vendors and businesses and help all people to become smarter shoppers.
The handbook offers helpful tips and advice on a number of consumer issues, including:
- Buying a car
- Buying a home
- Preventing identity theft
- Understanding credit
- Filing consumer complaints
The 168-page guide is designed specifically to help citizens find the most direct and helpful resources for assistance with consumer problems and questions. Additions to the 2008 edition include updated information about filing for bankruptcy, finding a lawyer, and planning a funeral, among others.
