I will admit that I do not always automatically check the charges on my two credit cards. However, I do check and occasionally have found charges that were valid but that I didn’t realize were being charged, i.e., a Bright House charge for Showtime which I had not canceled at the end of the free year and a credit rating firm that gave free credit ratings that resulted in a monthly charge after a certain amount of time. In 2008, when Sweet Bay supermarkets admitted that their credit accounts had been hacked into, everyone was advised to check their credit card bills. When I got to my bill from Discover card, I checked it carefully and found one entry that bothered me: What in the world? Al Gore was long gone from the political scene. I checked the date and didn’t see that I had bought anything on that date so I clicked on the site address. Mystery solved: was “Go Renew dot-com,” the site established by Pinellas County to renew your driver’s license.
