Every day tens of thousands of people report bad charges on their credit and debit card bills to their banks and merchants. Millions more post their complaints online. Up until now all that knowledge hasn't been benefiting the most important person of all, you. BillGuard is a free service that harnesses our collective vigilance to protect everyone from hidden charges, billing errors, misleading subscriptions, scams and fraud.
people don't check their bills, or merely skim them quickly for large purchases.
It's not only hackers, but legitimate merchants that are taking advantage of us with charges we're purposefully meant to miss or forget about.
By our estimates the average consumer loses over $300 a year to unwanted charges they're not even aware of. Card fraud alone is a $7 Billion a year crime with banks catching only a third of it. The rest is up to us.
