If you see the $9.84 from a company you've never done
business with, it likely means your card was stolen at some point. If you try
to Google the company's name, many people are finding it leads to a page on the
internet that claims it's "customer support."
The scammers believe that if they just charge your account
$9.84 you're not likely to notice. What they didn't count on were millions of
Americans carefully going over their statements after security breaches at
major retailers like Target. However, this scam is unrelated to the breaches,
according to the BBB.
If you're a victim of the $9.84 scam, or find any other suspicious withdrawal
from a strange company you don't recognize, call your bank. You may have to ask
them for a new card with a new account number.
