When you place an order on lifeproof.com, we must contact your credit card's bank to ensure that your credit card has a valid number. This is done via a full authorization for the amount of the purchase and is merely a security measure we use to protect your financial information. While it may seem as though you have multiple charges on your credit card, these are not charges. They are authorizations that will drop off of your statement (if your order did not go through) typically within 2 – 3 business days. We only charge a credit or debit card after an order has shipped, and we only charge the card once. If these authorizations are causing problems, you can simply call your bank to get them removed. If you experience further problems, please contact our customer service team and we would be happy to help in any way possible.
