My assistant manager was telling me the other day that they noticed a .01 cent charge on their credit card statement. Her husband is a police officer and checked into it.
Turns out the .01 cent charge is how theives find out if a card is real, active or even there! They had to cancel their card!:mad:
So please, keep an eye on your credit card! Most wouldnt notice a .01cent charge!

Own or have access to a ATM or Interac machine. Type in .01 and then run it through.


Not hard actually.
