You need a better card.

I dispute anything that doesn't match my records; I've disputed as little as $6 from a local store. I call the credit card company and submit the necessary papers via fax.

I often hear people say, "Oh, it's a just a few dollars off; what's the big deal?" Depending on the business, that "few dollars" may be put on 100, 1000, 10000 different people. Would you say, "Oh, it's just $50,000 off; what's the big deal?" The credit card companies keep track of these disputes; if a company is continually getting hit with them, they will investigate.

Of the top things to be scared of there is no mention of terrorism. But watch out for family members! "Over 16,000 Americans will be murdered this year, most often by a relative or friend."

MasterLock writes "Segway is back in the news: they are unveiling a new device called the P.U.M.A (Personal Urban Mobility & Accessibility). prototype. From the site: 'Think of it as a digital solution to an analog problem. Segway's P.U.M.A. (Personal Urban Mobility & Accessibility) prototype represents the shift that's needed for the future of transportation. It values less over more; taking up less space, using less energy, produced more efficiently with fewer parts, creating fewer emissions during production and operation, all while offering more enjoyment, productivity, and connectivity.' Think of it as a segway with a seat and space for two. Project P.U.M.A. videos will be available Tuesday April 7th after 10am EDT."
