Bankers say beware of hidden charges

January 6, 2004

Albany- Bankers say businesses often make mistakes when computing your bills, and it's up to you to find the mistakes and correct them.

"Of course you always have to look for clients that are not always of the best integrity. Sometimes, there is a deliberate amount put on the account which you did not authorize, and again it comes back to really monitoring and watching what was put on that statement," says Cornell Kimbrough of Capital City Bank.

Bankers also say it's important to check bank and credit card statements for automatic deductions that you may not be aware of.
