WASHINGTON (AP) - The Better Business Bureau has issued a national alert, warning consumers about a new credit card scam.
The organization is urging Americans to check their credit and debit cards for unexplained charges of $9.84.
The warning says thieves think they can get away with charging thousands of cards smaller amounts instead of trying to steal larger amounts from fewer cards.
The BBB also says the thieves think the credit card companies won't go after such a small amount. They said if you find small, unexplained charges on your card, report it and get a new card.
