Take A Close Look At Credit Card/Bank Statements Says DATCP

The State consumer protection agency says you should be taking a look at your credit card or bank statements for unwanted subscription services.

Director Michael Domke says it’s very easy to get tricked into paying or overpaying for an app or service these days.

“I think people would be surprised how many times they may sign up for that free trial, and either forget to cancel it or went past the trial or started paying for something they didn’t realize they were gonna get into.”

Domke says you should also check to see if a service you signed up for has just raised its price without telling you, or if you’re paying for streaming services you aren’t using.
