"We’ve fixed the problem and will refund any amount that was incorrectly charged by the end of the day," the company said Tuesday. "We know situations like these can be frustrating, and we’re sorry for the difficulty this may have caused. We’re dedicated to protecting every account and transaction on Cash App, and we’re always working to improve the experience."
