Do you have a security system for your home? Maybe you're waiting until your home is broken into, then you'll get one? The time to get a security system isn't after your home has been broken into. Instead, everyone should have some type of security system as a preventive measure before a break in occurs.
I generally have my bills automatically charged to a credit card that earns points, then pay the credit card bills when they're due. As a result, I don't normally inspect my recurring utility bills that closely. After all, they're monthly services that really shouldn't change much in cost. However, after that credit card was recently compromised, I had to redirect charges to another card. As I did so, I got a much closer look at recurring bills. When I saw my cable TV/internet bill, I almost fell over.
