Credit Card 101 (Credit Abuse Resistance Education)
The judges from the Tampa Division and local attorneys from the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association made a presentation to University of Tampa freshmen about the true cost of credit cards on Feb. 20 and 21, 2008. The presentation is part of the Credit Abuse Resistance Education program, also known as C.A.R.E. It demonstrates the way consumer credit works and the actual cost of credit card purchases if balances are not paid in full each month. The project is partially funded by a grant from The Florida Bar Foundation.
