    So be cautious what you buy with your credit card on the internet and scrutinize all "free" offers. Nothing is free where a credit card transaction is concerned.

    You gotta read before you click, and some of those people went almost a year before they noticed READ your billing statements people!

    I hate when companies are sneaky like that, they definitely did their best to barely stay within the law. They are taking advantage of the ignorant.....But we have to take some responsibility for our own stupid actions.
