Victims of the Home Depot security breach are starting to notice fraudulent charges on their accounts. Hackers stole information about 56 million credit and debit cards during the breach.

Three types of charges are popping up:

Micro-charges, which are less than $10, are intentionally small in hopes you don't notice them.

Mega-charges are big-ticket items such as TVs and cameras that cost thousands.

And since debit cards were among those hacked, some bank accounts have been drained.
