Yeah I`ve had it for online shopping sites before...Trying to remember if it gets refunded by CC company or if I ended up paying it, as it has been a while since I added details to a new site....You could call you CC if it really bothers you as I`m sure they would refund it if its not automatically recredited to you, since its part of their security measures.

Darren's answer is incorrect. Irene has it right.

LL posts an authorization request to your card, but they don't bill the card, and they retract the request after they have verified that the card company would have been willing to pay them that $1 USD.  For a matter of a few minutes, your available credit limit on your card is reduced by $1. But it pops right back again, once they retract the request.

They do NOT actually charge you $1 and pay it back to you in L$. If you set up credit card info and soon after that saw L$250 appear in your account, that is probably because you bought a Premium membership, and the L$ is your stipend payment or else it might be a sign-up bonus. At one point, if you agreed to enter payment info at the time you signed up for a brand new account, LL would pay you L$250 or so as an incentive for having payment info on file with them from the beginning. I don't think that has been the case for years, but they may have re-instated that policy.
