Why do I see a double charge on my account?

If you see a double charge on your RoarMoneySM account, it may be due to a pre-authorization charge.

Common with gas stations and hotels, a pre-authorization method is used to ensure that you have sufficient funds in your account. Therefore, the merchant may pre-authorize the card for a certain amount and later charge the card for the actual transaction amount.

Once the actual/final transaction settles, the pre-authorized charge should drop off. Sometimes, the preauthorized transaction does not drop off immediately because the merchant may use a different transaction ID. In these cases, it may take 2-3 business days for the preauthorized transaction to disappear.

If you continue to see a double charge on your transaction history and you believe it may be fraudulent, please click on the conversation bubble at the top right corner of the screen inthe MoneyLion app.
