It's all across the news today and it looks to be something that you should be legitimately concerned about.  With the recent thefts of credit card information, some of the numbers are being tried out with small charges.

The Better Business Bureau is/was reporting an influx of charges for $9.84 to peoples credit cards. On your statement it gives you a website and going round and round with them to get your money back seems to be fruitless. The BBB is also warning that the scammers may be changing the amount since the word is getting out about the $9.84.

The best thing to do instances like this is to contact your credit card company immediately!  If these smaller charges are allowed to go through, a much bigger charge may be on the way.  Get on the phone!  It's worth it.
