LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Attorney General Bill Schuette is encouraging Michigan residents to take advantage of free seminars on personal finance.

Community groups and government agencies are hosting events for Money Smart Week beginning Saturday. Each year, groups host seminars throughout the country to promote financial literacy.

Schuette's office says Money Smart and local organizations are holding free seminars in southeast Michigan. Other events are going on throughout the state.

Schuette is also giving advice for making smart decisions. He says consumers should never give out personal information to unfamiliar people over the phone or email. Consumers should also order a free annual credit report and reduce telemarketing calls by signing up for the national do-not-call program.
