Someone Tried TO USE My USAA AMEX!!!!!

I just logged into my USAA account online to check the account balance. I noticed there was one ($1) pending authorization pending. I only used my card once to purchase something at Groupon. I need to call them to report lost/stolen cards. Last year, someone tried to do the same thing to my USAA World MC.

Could be from the May breach. Hoping the $1 goes unnoticed to find open accounts. I've had it happen before but with no relation to USAA.

The merchant is in Austin, TX. It is very strange.

Does it list an address? FWIW, Apple's iTunes (and by extension their Mac App Store) bill from Austin, at least for me... I agree with Cranski that it could be someone fishing around for accounts.

The Merchant is not Apple Inc. It is called Motion Computing Inc.  They are located in Austin, Texas. I found their address thru google. They also used my card at match.com according to USAA CSR. It got denied. I just called to block the card and they're going to send me a new card.

I sugguest everyone should keep an eye on their accounts.

Thanks LS. I already called them to close it. They did twice to my USAA cards. They did to my USAA World MC last year.

I check every one of my cards once a day, always want to be ahead of thieves.
