Fall Car Care Month graphic

October is Fall Car Care Month and a great time to make sure your vehicle is winter-ready! Did you know that routine maintenance and repairs can be completed at a certified, independent repair shop and your warranty remains valid? The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act outlines the requirements of a warrantor and explains that consumers are not required to use branded vehicle parts or complete repairs at a dealership to maintain the warranty.

Review our Vehicle Warranty resources to learn about Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and how it impacts consumers.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

What are the differences between people who lose money to scammers and those who don’t? People who avoid scams don’t engage with scam offers. They ignore suspicious emails, delete friend requests and hang up on bogus collection calls. People don’t lose money when they have someone to talk to about a suspicious situation they are caught up in, like being asked to wire money to a stranger. Store cashiers, bank tellers and wire transfer employees help them by talking them out of sending money. People are able to steer clear of cons when they educate themselves about specific scams and the tactics that scammers use. Visit our Frauds & Scams Consumer Protections page to inform yourself and others how to avoid losing money to scammers.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Each October, the Department of Financial Services participates in Domestic Violence Awareness Month in an effort to empower survivors on the journey to rebuild their lives. The Your L.I.F.E. (Learning Independent Financial Empowerment) financial literacy program was developed to provide survivors with a guide that addresses topics such as understanding their finances, repairing damaged credit, insurance and benefits and much more. Visit the Your L.I.F.E. homepage to learn more about the resources available.
