Tip of The Day: Check Your Credit Card Statement

by James & Miel on January 30, 2009 · 0 comments

Hi All,

While we’d like to think the world is a trustworthy place, sometimes it just isn’t. We have a friend who compared her credit card receipts with her statements for the year. In some cases she found that the amount she’d authorized for a tip had been changed.

In some cases this was a couple of dollars, e.g. changing a 2 to a 3. In others, it was adding a 1 to the total, that is adding a 1 to a 3 dollar tip to make it a 13 dollar charge, rather than a 3 dollar tip.

Our advice: check your statements. Little problems with your statement could build up and affect your wealth over time.
