Skip to comments.'WebLearn' Scam (fraudulent credit card charges) Appears on Credit Card Bill (888-461-2032)
Posted on 03/10/2014 4:45:17 PM PDT by topher
I noticed a suspicious charge on my credit card.
I was thinking about cancelling my card just because I have used it in so many places.
I checked with the Phone Center that handles 'Lost/Stolen' cards for my account (my bank). They verified that 'WebLearn' is a fraudulent charge.
It is no big deal for me as I thought about cancelling my card when I made the call, but the 'WebLearn' made sure I cancelled the Visa Card immediately.
Basically, this webpage shows the 'fraudulent charge' as it appears on the credit card.
Thanks for the heads up.
I am only post the link itself and any other information.
At this site, they claim this is a 'hack' related to the Target Hack... I don't know about this
Credit card companies would be smart to simply disallow charges like this as soon as they receive enough complaints to consider the company a scam. Block them completely.
I am not sure why they don’t, but you are right, credit card companies should...
Thanks for the info.

There is nothing about my account in that text...
This is something for people to look for...
I saw that change on my cc last night, 10.53 and a 33 international charge as well. I have never used this card at Target, and only use it for a few things. I did just pay for a 299.00 seminar and used it to book a room in Tallahassee last week though.
It is an International charge that is varying with current rate changes. My was for 10.21
This morning the charge is for 10.87
Got a notice from my bank about a minor charge on the debit card. Checked it out with bank and found a lot of traffic over the past day about BLS WEBLEARN as a scam.
Bank said they had received several calls about fraudulent charges from this vendor.
Basically, BLS WebLearn is a scam (the site with just the name WebLearn appears to be okay).
They bilk people for about $10 hoping people will not notice the charge on their credit cards.
They WIN if the charge is not disputed within 30 days.
It appears to have started about March 7 -- the time of the problems with Russia and the Ukraine (I believe this might be some sort of Russian Mafia operation). But it is unclear who is behind it.
I may have to get the Admin Moderator change the title...

Versus the fraudulent charge with:
BLS*WEBLEARN 888-4612032 ...
This is probably one of 'better' sites reporting this:
They folks reporting the scam may not realize that this is based on a charge in a foreign currency.
They reported a charge of $10.12
The fact it is such an odd number has to do with the foreign currency it is being charged against.
It could be classified as terrorism...

In my case, the charge started out as $10.21, then changed to $10.87, and settled at $10.96
It must in a very volatile currency for it fluctuate so much day to day...
A couple of days ago, I noticed $11 pending on my HSBC credit card from a so called “vendor” named BLS*WEBLEARN8884612032 ST JULIANS MH
I called the bank and flagged the scam. They didn’t seem to be aware of it. They told me to wait for the pending charge to become actual and then dispute it. I cancelled the card, anyway, and I thought they understood that we are dealing with a scam.
However, I can see now that I have a new credit card account, but on my old account, the fraudulent $11 charge became actual. Which means that, so far, the bank didn’t do anything about this fraudulent charge.
I just disputed it and now I have to wait 48h for a response.
