The Better Business Bureau and security blogger Brian Krebs say scammers have stolen credit card numbers for small amounts. Some victims were hit with charges of $9.84. Consumers are urged to be vigilant.
“First off we need to recognize that we’re in this as well,” says credit expert John Ulzheimer at creditsesame.com. “We can’t just assume that other companies are going to protect our information. We also have to be involved.”
Ulzheimer says it’s important to check your bills and bank statements frequently. “Most people wait until the end of the month when they get their credit card bill in the mail or online to actually check their statement. That’s way too long.”
