Watch out for credit card fraud

I would like to warn those people who order through their credit cards to be very careful. I ordered items of which half of the order was to be “free.” Well, it was not free; I was charged for shipping and handling. This is not the credit card’s fault, it’s the company you order from. I suggest that you order only what you first asked for. Do not order that “free” item, because you will pay for that “free” item in shipping and handling even when all items are in one box or package.

Be sure to check your bill from the credit card each month. I also had items charged to me that I never ordered. Calling the credit card company, I found out that other companies you may have ordered from previously can, and will, give out your credit card number to other companies.

I hope this may help those who order through the phone or Internet to be very careful.
