A new debit and credit card scam has been spreading throughout the country, with each transaction showing the name “BLS Weblearn.” Now, reports indicate the people behind the Weblearn transactions might also have been involved with the recent $9.84 scam.

With the Weblearn scam, odd charges show up between $8 and $15, usually in the form of a debit card transaction. Most of the consumers who have reported these charges find that it is almost impossible to access a workable phone number or email address to contact Weblearn.

The exact identity of the scammers case is unknown at this time, but banking representatives have said all along that there is a “strong investigative link” between Weblearn and the $9.84 scandal. In the $9.84 scam, the scammers used different company names with the same amount of money. These scammers are using the same name with varying amounts.

Security expert Brian Krebs is reporting that these payments are being processed by a company called BlueSnap, which lists its offices in Massachusetts, California, Israel, Malta and London. Krebs reports the payment network, Credorax, used by the $9.84 scam listed offices in Massachusetts, Israel, Malta and London.

Watch out for any strange, unauthorized charges on your credit and debit card accounts. Review your statements diligently. Report any issues you uncover to your bank immediately.
