Cross-Selling Online Scams and Security Issues

elfkicker Re:Rampant Fraud (101 comments)

My bank just contacted my the other day for a $1.33 charge. They called within an hour of transaction which I didn't make. Operator cancelled the card and my card immediately but wouldnt explain how they knew they knew I didnt do it. I appreciate the proactive approach, but they should really be telling me The Whole Truth.

The charge was to a company called Jazz Inc with an 800#, when you call it it says "Press 1 for more information to be texted to you about the charge on your bill." I assume they somehow ends up in a sizable charge via you cell carrier, but I just hung up.

Anyone seen or know more about this obvious scam?
