If you identify a charge or charges on your recent transactions that you don't recognize, you should review the following pieces of information to confirm if the transaction was authorized by you:
- The company name may not always be displayed the same on your transaction history. Some companies may have a parent company name or use third party processors such as Square or Toast. Try focusing on the transaction amount to determine if you made any recent purchases or do a simple web search.
- Example: You buy Groceries at FoodPLUS Market for around $100. You don’t see any transactions for FoodPlus Market, but the unrecognized transaction from NW Grocers LLC is also for around $100. After searching ‘NW Grocers LLC’ on the web, you find that they are the parent company for FoodPlus Market.
- Sometimes companies will use their headquarters as their billing address.
- Example: You used a ride service in New York City, but the charge came through as ‘Ride Service San Francisco’.
- Has any member of your household had access to your card or added the card information to a third party service such as Paypal/Venmo?
- Are the charges similar to charges one would make in your household?
- Example: Your child has a game system and the charge is for that system.
- Review the charge and attempt to determine if you made any recent purchases using your mobile wallet, in game purchases, or other digital subscriptions.
