WTF is happening with my credit card?

My credit card statement shows two charges made online to Microsoft Store. The charges were reversed (credited back) two days later. The net effect on the credit card balance is zero, but I'm freaking out about it anyway. The Microsoft Store people were able to tell me that it was for a download version of Office and the email address used was firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't recognize this email address. Can anyone venture a guess what's going on? There have been no other fraudulent charges on the credit card in years. And I find the fact that the charges were reversed, apparently by the person who made the charges initially, creepy beyond belief. The credit card was Discover and the charges were made on Thanksgiving Day, if it matters.
