Make sure you monitor your checking, savings and credit card transactions for suspicious activity. You may be contacted by someone who claims to have accidentally sent you money. They contact you and ask you to send the money back to them since it was a mistake. What you don't know is that the money came from a stolen credit card. You politely send them their money back. Before you know it the credit card company finally sees the scam transaction and automatically withdrawals the originally deposited money. Watch out for this scam, if you accidentally receive money in your account just keep it there and don't spend it. Leave it to the banks to correct the issue.
