$9.84 Credit Card Charge

If you see a $9.84 charge on your credit card statement, give it a hard look. The Better Business Bureau and security experts say scammers are charging stolen credit card numbers for a small amount of money, and many recent victims were billed $9.84.

The scheme predates the recent security breach involving more than 100 million customers at Target. But it's likely that the massive worldwide attention surrounding the Target investigation has helped expose the $9.84 scam.

As always when a charge appears and you are not sure where it came from or wish to obtain additional information, contact your bank or debit/credit card services for additional information or to file a fraud claim on the charge. Never attempt to contact the company who charged you directly unless you are positive of its origin and it is a trusted company.
