Buddy, can you spare a quarter?

Hey ... times have changed. A dime no longer does the trick.

But apparently a quarter does.

Some one, or some people, are either testing their credit card number thieving techniques or are ripping people off, a quarter at a time. From Boston.com:

Several Internet complaint boards are filled with comments from credit card customers from coast to coast who have noticed a mysterious charge for about 25 cents on their statements.

The charge shows up on statements as coming from "Adele Services" in Melville, N.Y. There is no business by that name listed in Melville, or registered to any business anywhere in New York, for that matter.
The suggestion from experts is that, if you notice such a charge on your credit card bill, you should dispute it.

Don't you sometimes just long for the days when your money was in the local bank, you had your little pass book ... and that was it. Maybe you don't remember those days ... I only barely remember them.

But then - I barely remember last week!
