Na, I'd say the oldest is the old fashioned auto-recurring charge. A customer buys something or gets a "free" trial, but they don't know they are auto-enrolling in a monthly purchase or subscription. I don't see this hurting the younger ones as much but the elderly are often milked by this scam because they either don't notice it or don't know how to stop it.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
