When you get your credit card statement at the end of the month, most likely you don’t check and analyze every charge billed to your card. Now there is a service that does it for you, called BillGuard. It is a free personal finance tool that scans your credit card’s activity and looks for hidden charges, billing errors, forgotten subscriptions, scams etc, and alerts you by email if it detects suspicious charges.
You simply register your credit and debit card(s) on their site and get a monthly report of your card transactions, analyzed by the service. Your transactions will be grouped as “OK”, “unsure” or a “red flag” based on how “clean” a transaction is. Each transaction is analyzed by over 100 automated tests and is compared against complaints posted by others online about similar questionable charges and merchants that appear on your bill. Whenever it detects suspicious charges you will get alerts in your email.
