Important information for congregations and agencies with community programs

If your congregation, agency, or ministry works with education programs, people returning to community after incarceration, people who do not speak English, or refugees you will be interested in this material from the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Consumer & Business Education.  

  • High School Diploma Scams warns people about scammers who are setting up fake diploma sites to trick you into paying for their “diplomas,” which turn out to be worthless: You can use this blog post as your own information for newsletters or other communication: Looking to get a high school diploma? Watch out for scams.
  • College Degree Scams - warns people about diploma mills, scammers selling fake degrees from unaccredited schools. You can also use all the FTC’s articles as your very own.
  •  IdentityTheft.gov since many people reentering society may have had their identities stolen or compromised while incarcerated, identity theft is something to be diligent about. This site allows people to report identity theft, create an affidavit of the incident(s) and generate a personal recovery plan. There’s also information on avoiding ID theft. Here’s an article you can use – again, as your own, to spread the word: Report identity theft and get a personal recovery plan at IdentityTheft.gov.

 

All FTC’s resources are free of charge and copyright-free; you can use them as your own.

All the materials are available in Spanish, as well.
