Are you $9.95 out of pocket?

Next to the more or less daily scams mentioned in the previous post, we’re seeing a resurgence in another scamming tactic.

Over the last couple of weeks more people are reporting charges of $9.95 to their credit cards – for no reason whatsoever.

About a year ago we saw a similar trend and now it has been picked up again.

The scammers hope that because the amount of money is so small, the charge will go unnoticed. They’re also using names which closely resemble real company names to make the charges look (at first glance) more legitimate.

So be sure to check your accounts for odd charges on a regular basis.
