First time this has shown up on my Wells Fargo checking account activity journal: Pending transaction: 02/22/12 CHKCARDGOOGLE* CC GOOGCOMCAUS 02/27/12 $1.00 I have no idea who is planning on dinging my account this Monday, nor for how much, because I have been told that when a pending transaction amount is entered as $1.00, it is often done as a placeholder for an as yet undetermined amount, like the gas pump total. I almost never use this card, and when I do, it is normally for airline tickets and car rentals. I called Wells Fargo customer service regarding this pending transaction, yet remarkably, they do not have the means to see who placed it. One other strange thing is the CSR said that the charge will go through for the entire amount when placed on Monday because the "hold" secured that for them, but I put the hard limit on my account, with no overdrafts permissible, so they shouldn't be able to do that. Since I don't have any outstanding checks or recurring payments coming in, I'm going to go to the bank and pull out my cash, except for a few dollars and see how this plays out: basically, if anyone tries to grab even $10, I will find out who they are and how much they were trying to get without them temporarily tying up very much of my money. The one coincidence I notice is that I read my card number on that date over the phone to a funeral parlor that was going to charge me $25 to pick up two death certificates from the local city hall and mail them to me. Funny thing, I don't think they asked me for the three digit security code on the back of the card. I can't remember the last time I used it without having to furnish that.
