BBB: Why you should worry if you see a charge of $9.84 on your bank, credit card statement

Credit cards

OKLAHOMA CITY – While millions of customers are scrambling to get new debit and credit cards after a series of data breaches, officials with a national organization say there may be one simple charge that you should be looking for on your statements.

The Better Business Bureau is warning Americans about one charge, in particular, that may appear on your monthly statement.

Officials say scammers are charging stolen credit card numbers $9.84.

They say the scam artists believe customers won’t notice a small charge and credit card companies won’t go after such a small sum.

The charge usually goes back to a generic website for “Customer Support.”

The BBB says you should contact your bank immediately and ask for a new credit card.
