TWX*MAGAZINE ORDER / Unauthorized charge / pending debit

This has appeared in my bank account three times in the last month (once on 10/26/08 and twice on 11/25/08). The first time, I submitted an online complaint to my bank, but the charge disappeared on its own after I did this. This last time, I called my bank's customer service, who conference called to the number she had for the company. It turns out that this is a pre-authorization to renew a subscription to a magazine that I had signed up for a "free trial" some months ago. It looks like the only way to defeat it is to cancel the card and get a new one.

    You are an idiot - it was just a preauthorization amount just to make sure the card was valid
