|If you're scanning your credit card statement for fraud, you're probably looking for $3,000 at Best Buy or mysterious charges for first class tickets on Air Ethiopia. But THIS fraud probably would never catch your eye.|
According to the Better Business Bureau, you NEED to scan your statement and see if you've been charged...for exactly $9.84.
Apparently a giant network of scammers around the world has been making those small charges on TONS of people's credit cards. They figured it was easier to avoid being noticed stealing $10 from one million people, than $1 million from 10 people.
The $9.84 charge will look like it's from a generic company . . . you wouldn't recognize the name, so you'd probably just think it was a restaurant or something if you were glancing over your statement.
If you DO have a random $9.84 charge on your card, call your credit card company immediately, report it, and get a new card.
