Mystery fee of $9.84 appearing on people's bank statements

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

You'd better check your bank and credit card statements. Lots of people around the country are discovering a mystery fee of $9.84.

It's not another bank fee. It's a scam, according to the Better Business Bureau.

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.
