Same issue! The amount is too small for any financial institution to actually dispute, so they just eat the charge, and google*midas goes on stealing from our banks! It's not all the banks' fault that charges to consumers are high ... they have tons of costs and high insurance premiums to cover. Things like this are pernicious and hurt us all. Boo to you, Google*Midas. Stealing money from Americans and our Financial Institutions $1.15 at a time is mean business.

i have the same problem..every month there are more charges. last month i had six charges of $2.32 each. is there anything that we could do to stop this?

Just a hint, I had this problem and it was from purchases made for a game called candy crush saga on the phone. Maybe check if you have that app installed and if someone is using your playstore account to purchase stuff for it.

Oh, and 1.15 is definitely for power ups in the game and 2.32 is for a different power up.

Jo S kelly, that was my problem with them too. I was s upposed to be buying a charm of stripes for 1.15 but it charged me $46.57. I wrote back to them in my google wallet (that's how it pays for it ) and hopefully they'll get back to me soon. I needed that money. It said 1.15 in the game (Candy Crush Saga).

Thank U so much ppl! I just noticed the same amount for purchases made to Google *Midas, and had to look it up. I came across this forum and my question was answered. I have the free app. for candy crush but my darling (sarcasm) daughter decided she needed to buy some extra candy to pass a few levels! So annoyed!

What is this? Is it a phone app? I do not do many phone apps and the ones I do are free. I did not authorize these $.99 charges on my debit card. How do I stop them?

Several one dollar charges were made on my card plus a few higher ones. It's a company card and now they think I stole from them. I just want to clear my name.

If you have a debit card on file to buy these items for gaming, go to your bank and close your card and open a new one. If you have given your account number out to buy on-line, close your account and open a new one. Someone has probably hacked your account and gained access to your card. Debit/Credit card fraud happens more than you ever know. Check your account daily to ensure you see all items clearing your account.
