Have you ever heard of a NY based company called Adele Services? No? That's because it doesn't exist, but credit card holders across the country became familiar with the phantom company when it recently appeared on their statements. Consumers from around the country picked up on the $0.25 cent charge with concern that their credit identity had been compromised.
The Better Business Bureau hypothesizes that the scam is meant to build a large sum from many small charges. While $0.25 might not cause you to worry, you may wish to report a false charge out of principal. Scan your statement for the suspicious company and file a dispute with your credit card company.
