Have you ever purchased something and noticed a strange charge at the bottom of the receipt? Most of us in Colorado certainly have.

You probably haven't noticed those sneaky charges because companies love to bury them in the fine print at checkout or on the bottom of your receipt. Many of the fees can be called junk fees.
