    My credit card website has a service that sends a message to my mobile in case of any request of charging on the card beyond a limit I can choose (I set it to €20).
    This is VERY useful.
    Furthermore, when I receive the message, I have a certain time limit to block the charging in case of a suspect or unauthorized use.

    You could check if you have this option on you CC website.

    Gates doesn't get his money from stocks anymore, he charges his users directly now :p

    Can you get online banking for your statement? If you can, most of the time you can click on a transaction and get a phone number and other contact info for the charge.

    That's 100% Xbox Live yearly subscription. They tried to charge me last month with that exact same "MICROSOFT ONLINE SVCS - HTTP://BILL.M".

    In fairness though, they do email you about 10 times 30 days in advance of charging your card.

    I got around worrying if XBL was gonna charge my card by using a $1 Gift Credit Card. M$ takes a dollar to see if the card is valid. Which is good because they will auto-renew xbl subs so when they go to take more money in a year (well now 6 months) they wont have anything more than a dollar :D Way to Go Microsoft! :rock:
