Credit & Debit Cards Scams Website claimed credit card declined, but higher charge posted.

I tried to order computer item they had listed at admittedly half the price anyone else carried the item ($9 instead of $19). I was ordering 5. The site said flat shipping rate of $0, and every indication was that $44.97 U.S. would be what was charged. Turns out no matter which credit card I try to buy with, the site claims the charge was declined - however one of the two credit cards actually showed a new suspicious pending charge of around $48 (more than what was supposed to be, although not only an even dollar amount higher). Once the charge actually posted, it posted at $50.64, and says that the merchant country is "China, Peoples Republic of". I've disputed the charge and the credit card company has provisionally credited my account while they investigate.
