Credit Card Fraud

I recently noticed a charge on my debit card from a company titled (on my debit card statement) WLI*SHOPPERDISCO

I did some research on the internet and found that this is a GIANT fraud The following companies are but a few of the online companies which give your credit card info out to that company which begins charging a small amount (in my case 9 dollars) so you don't even notice it. When I called my bank after seeing this charge for today and knowing I didn't even use my debit card all day long they sent it to the fraud investigation team. Here is a website which gives more information. I am blogging this to inform any of my readers that they may want to look at their credit card statements and see if they have had this same thing happen to them.

Here are the web pages which can give you more information about this scam:

Here is a partial list of online companies which actively participate in the scam:
Academy of Dermatology Website
CHOICEHOTELS.COM -- using the Coke $10 discount
MOVIETICKETS.COM one we were personally stung by
