****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.

Two theories of what is going on have advanced on message boards and among consumer advocates: Someone is trying to find out whether an illegally obtained credit card number will work before making a bigger charge, or they're trying to rip off tiny amounts from tons of people....*****

This is incredebly (sp?) petty, but my "Dell" card decided (because I was obviously STUPID), that since I paid $.10 too much, they would "write it off", BUT I have in the past gotten (because I am obviously THAT stupid), statements for $.10 owed...

PS I sent a letter today to cancel this account.
