Attorney Melchionne participates in C.A.R.E. Program

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut sponsors the C.A.R.E. Program teaching high school and college students about the dangers of uncontrolled spending and credit cards. C.A.R.E. stands for Credit Abuse Resistance Education. Most recently, Attorney Melchionne participated in the program by teaching a class of Freshmen and Sophomores at Quinnipiac University about credit scores, credit reporting, credit card abuses and the dangers of collection agencies. Explaining that pizza, sneakers and iPods bought on credit can lead to budgetary problems in the future and garnishment of income or inability to pay student loans, the students learned about responsible spending.
