Check those credit card statements!

January 12th, 2009

I know that it can take some courage to open those post-holiday credit card statements, but it's a really good idea to do so! Why? Well, you need to be on the lookout for any charges that might have been made by scammers - even small charges could be a sign that more are about to be made.

Security experts advise consumers to keep a close eye on their bank and credit card statements, and for good reason: Small, unauthorized charges often are the first sign that thieves have made off with your account number and are getting ready to sell it to other crooks or use it to rack up thousands of dollars in fraudulent purchases.

It's one thing spending your own money, it's quite another to let fraudsters get away with spending it!
