One of the most important thing for people who have credit cards can do is to check their statements to ensure they are only paying for charges they made. Fraudulent charges on a credit card statement can make it difficult to pay off credit card debt. A recent credit card scam involves a very small charge that some people might not even realize has been made on the credit card. Wisconsin residents should make sure to check their statements for a charge of less than $10.
According to a report, an unauthorized charge in the amount of $9.84 on your statement might be part of the "$9.84 scam." Some people have wondered if this charge was related to the recent retail breaches, but that seems unlikely because some of the victims haven't shopped at Target or other affected retailers.
