    i just looked at my credit card bill this morning online, and found something that says DMI DELL GIFT CARD, there were two posted for a dollar, and another posted for $100. i googled it and found a forum of a bunch of other people getting scammed for it as well. if you see that make sure you call your bank!

    Fkn thieves. I want to eradicate them from the earth. If we started cutting off body parts when they get caught like some other countries that stuff would slow down or stop.

    Thanks for the warning.

    A few months ago I kept getting a charge for 4.95 from some online book company. I googled it and found the same thing... Scam. My bank finally had to issue me a new card. Read your statements carefully. Everybody is out to get your money.:mad:

    The latest CC scam going on around here is thousands of people have been dinged for a $.25 charge.
    The last news report I saw on it they still haven't been able to trace where it is going or how the numbers were compromised in the first place.

    Many people will ignore a charge for a measly quarter but that is a mistake because when the charge goes through it confirms the card is valid and then the scumbags can move onto bigger amounts.

    I had a charge for .11 that showed up on my bank statement last week. The company name was just initials like HMLS or something. I was like WTF? I called the 1-800 number that was listed on my statement, it was from Texas and had been disconnected. I called my bank and gave them the info I had. They told me it was a fraudulent company and had received many complaints.

    What the thiefs do is charge your debit card for usually an amount of $1 or less. Once they see that it's a valid account, they come back and wipe you out. Needless to say, my card was cancelled immediately and a new one issue.

    LESSON LEARNED: Always look at your bank statement!

    well, depending on your bank ( i have bank of america), they will send you an email regarding irregular account activity, and deactivate your cc until you call or go online. once i went online, it will show your most recent transactions and will ask you if any of them aren't yours, then once you click whatever isn't yours, it will deactivate your card and send you a new one!

    This is where online statements really help, you can see your transactions a day or two after they're made and ensure that your being charged for what you signed for. I had an oops a couple months ago when i signed for a tank of gas on my credit card but they stuck an extra zero on there. It was $787.00!!! Bank and the vendor cleared it up the same day.

    ANY FRAUDULENT TRANSACTIONS ARE DISPUTABLE!

    Sorry for the caps but had to get my point across. I work at a bank and know for a fact! If you did not authorize the transaction then you can dispute it at your financial institution and get every penny back. Rest assured my friends. :D
