In a confessional blog post that shocked some of you last week, I told you about how a company called BLD Resume conned my son out of almost $500. I also shared some small but important changes in my personal finances that will ensure no one rips us off again. I have an update that might surprise you as much as the original story.

Every expense is an opportunity to learn
Every text became an opportunity to talk about money. Let’s start with the first unexpected charge, a $176 charge for language lessons. My oldest son is studying Portuguese and French. Early Friday morning, I received a text notifying me of the purchase. I asked the kids if anyone recognized the charge, and my oldest fessed up.

Throughout the week, my kids saw the incoming messages on my phone: $13 at the grocery store; $25 to reload my Starbucks card; $26 for pizza (teenagers eat a lot of pizza). Each message was another opportunity to talk about the value of the product or service for which we were paying.

Gottsegen, the president of Halstead Management Company, which manages 250 residential properties in the city.
Hey kids, let’s talk about change and improving personal finance!

My bank warned me that the text notifications were not sufficient to track expenses. It was right. On Aug. 10, my personal finance program picked up a $97 charge from the University of Iowa. I didn’t see it on my credit card. During our review, I asked my 15-year-old if he had a charge for $97 from Iowa. He didn’t. But he did have a charge from the University of Arizona, where he’s enrolled as a student. Mystery solved!

These money talks will protect you from future scams
It's hard to imagine LOST without Jack Shephard as the group leader. Where would the show have been without him? Had the show's writers gotten their way, we would have learned the answer to that question. When the show was pitched to ABC, Jack Shephard's character was supposed to be killed after the pilot episode, and Kate was supposed to take on more of a leadership role in the series.

You might have heard that economic recessions are fertile ground for scams. I believe one reason is that people are like me. They don’t want to know who’s charging their card and for how much.
