BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

What's in your wallet? Maybe nothing, if you bank at Capital One.

Technical issues are causing some debit card transactions to post more than once for certain customers, leaving some with overdrawn accounts.

In some cases, the same charge is being deducted up to three times.

Capital One sent out a tweet telling customers to “rest assured our support teams are engaged and working towards a fix.” 

The bank urged customers to check their online app for updates. A Capital One spokesperson said customers will be credited for the inaccurate charges but did not give a timeline for when those credits will be posted.
