Achieve Card - California, El Centro - DIDNT SEND ME NEW CARD

Posted: 2015-01-15 by    jsandovalman
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I requested a card on January 5th via telephone and agreed to pay the $9 fee. I called on January 12th to check the status of my achieve card and the same person told me there was a mistake or error that was made by one of the departments and that my card was never sent. I told the representative I wanted to speak to a supervisor. He placed me on hold for 10 to 15 minutes then he got back on the phone pretending to be a supervisor. I asked him if he was the same person and after a long pause he replied “no!”
they then decided to charge me a $29 dollar fee plus the $9 monthly...

Achieve Card - Direct Deposit

My friend had his tax refund deposited into your bank on Friday, March 4th. Apparently after speaking with several of your customer service representatives, supervisors, and compliance department (?) for more than an hour, we do not have our money yet. According to the complaint board, your company has had several run-ins with the same problem of not properly posting account deposits!
You should be ashamed of running a company who takes hard working individuals money from them!!! I know this deposit has been made!!! If your company does not have...

Achieve Card - Illegal ATM withdrawal

I received the card, eay to activate. But the first time I used the card to withdraw money from an ATM, my transaction of $40 + surcharges, was then again removed from my account 1 1/2 hours later. I filed a complaint with their company, waited well over the 45 days (2 1/2 months actually), to have customer service/claims dept. tell me that my claim was invalid. The only question she asked me regarding any more information, was do I have a receipt? For my first transaction? What difference does that make? I should not have to have a receipt to disapprove a transaction that I never preformed...sounds...

Dis card came unsolicited in the mail. I had activate it to see if it was credit and it didnt work and kept DECLINING. A few months later I hit them up about what the card is used for and they told me I could avoid check cashing by using direct depoist. My card had a starting balance of -$30 and they robbed me for 2 monthly fees and an activation fee. After speaking 2 a supervisor after my 3rd time calling, they revers 2 of the fees. The card doesnt always work. It charged me duplicate bill pays, and they keep authorization holds on my account for months. I do not reccomend ths card. I would reccomend...

Achieve Card - Texas - fraud

This prepaid card is a fraud from top to bottom. Stay away. First I see Ryan Thomas replied on here, he works for Achieve Card. What a joke he is .

He claims they have set up a special number for complaints, right to the president's desk. They will call you back. NO they do not. They ignore their customers.

I had their card for 6 months, twice I had unauthorized charges, charged to my account. Since this is a prepaid card, by law it has to stay who is w/d the money and supply a phone no.

There card does not do that. Twice in six months money was...

Achieve Card - Stinks

We recieved an Achieve Card in the mail. Which we did not apply for. With all the lowlifes out there trying to steal your identy anymore you have to be so careful of every offer that wants access to any of your personal numbers. Now you have these new scams where the thieves stand on the fence so to say. Sort of the old bait and switch. They make the offer seem like it would just make your life so much easier. But, like we have all heard, if something sounds to good to be true, it isn't. After eyeballing the Achieve Card offering, it just sounds to much like a bunch of snakes trying to get...

Achieve Card - Texas - Will not give you your money back

Some company in indonesia stole over 2200.00 off my card in one day in various dollar amounts. I called achieve card immediately to report it they told me to fill out a dispute form and then denied it several days later and said they would not give me my money back because the company that ripped me off had my security code on the back of my card. Well they would have that if i ordered online before and someone stole my information. This is a consumber rip off because banks are suppose to protect the cosumer of ripp off such as this. This was clearly a fraud because the company who stole the money...

Achieve Card - Utah - Security Breech in my Mailbox

Complaint Rating:  88 % with 8 votes
These idiots sent me a card in the mail without my ordering one. Not just a little fake plastic card, but a real, ready-to-be-activated prepaid credit card with my name on it. The activation sticker practically advertised what the PIN was.

I was not expecting this card. If it had been stolen in the mail, I never would have known. Because it was a prepaid kind, I know that means an account couldn't have been racked up in my name directly, but that doesn't mean harm couldn't have been done. Prepaid or not, that was a card attached to my name, my identity, and my personal...

Achieve Card - Texas, Dickinson - Lack of Fee Information

Complaint Rating:  92 % with 25 votes
When they sent me the card, there was no disclosure in the envelope, so I had no idea when I loaded the card that I would be charged $9.95 per month for the privilege of their crap prepaid card. It wasn't until logging on the the website that you find their terms and conditions. And you can't talk to anybody on the phone without paying $2.00. Don't be surprised if you get cut off several times, at $2.00 a call. I want to know how they can get away with this....
