WMDT 47 NEWS - April is national financial literacy month, and the consumer credit counseling service of Maryland and Delaware says it's time to "spring clean" your finances. The group is urging locals to set up a budget, if you haven't already, and keep your credit report up to date. The CCCS says staying on top of these will help balance and maintain financial security.
Another major issue? identity theft. Deanna booker, CCCS community and outreach director, says "identity theft is so prevalent, it is so prevalent that a study says a case of identity theft happens once every three seconds in this county. It is so prevalent and a lot of folks fail to realize that a lot of the times identity thieves are people that we know and trust."
