    Okay, WTF
    I added my credit cards on the stupid Wallet app on WP8 on my Lumia 920, and I just logged into my Discover account to find out that Microsoft decided to take $1 from my Discover card. Why? I HAVE NO IDEA
    I have NOT purchased anything on this device yet, and Microsoft took $1, idk why????

    Does anyone know how I can get a hold of Microsoft???? Email? Anything?
    Why is Microsoft taking my money?

    Most likely, it's not a charge, it's a hold that will go away in a month. Most companies do similar when you add a credit card; they need to verify that the card is actually yours.

    Is the $1 pending or has it posted? There is a difference. Usually companies will run the credit card number to validate it. It will show up as a $1 pending charge. But it does not get posted.

    Wow. This post is just a little sensationalist don't you think?

    i don't meant to be rude, but are you new to the online credit cards thing? PayPal, amazon, and I am sure other companies I can't think of right now all do this.

    LOL, Microsoft is NOT stealing your money. It's common for all companies to do that and it's just a test pending transaction. The $1 will disappear and you will not be charged.

    Microsoft is sending it to me for my Windows Phone Fashion Makeover 2012. My newly buffed-up physique from lifting this big heavy Lumia 920 needs some new duds to help complete the look. Nate Berkus will be the emcee, and there's going to be a simulcast on WPCentral just in time for the holidays! :D

    Any posters who vainly prefix a trivia-looking little "i" in their poster name cannot be taken seriously.
    What a joke :D
