Netspend put a block on my prepaid mastercard Mar 27th after I deposited 1000 into the account. I get text messaging saying available bal 1, 158 or 1, 153 since on Sat the 28th netspend took a $5 account assessment fee out. I wish I could of had $5 on Friday before running out of gas or my paycheck that was direct deposited into the account but now my rent is late. I hate Netspend and if they don't take the block off my card tomorrow I will be filing a lawsuit for grand theft....

I recently (last week) did my taxes through Turbo Tax and decided to get my tax return on a Netspend card because I had done it before for the 2012 tax yr and it was on there faster than I expected plus I am going into the hospital next week to give birth and just thought it would be he easiest method for me. I received my card in the mail today and opened it to activate online, I was told there was a problem and to call them. I called and it had me set up a PIN number for the card and then transferred me to a costumer service agent. She asked me my name, address, and last 4 of my social. I did...

The trainer named Rachel Altkens was very slandering and patronizing during the training session that began on 01/05/2015. She would make comments such as how she could care less about workers being late to training. At one point she stopped during a training session to explain how she was "starting to get pissed off" because one of the other black male participants was trying to explain himself. This past Monday i asked Rachel a question regarding the topic she was discussing. She answered my question but shortly afterwards she made a facetious comment saying "so dumb" that...

I received a NetSpend debit Visa card for Christmas, 12/25/14, after reading how to activate and the fees section I tried to return it to the place of purchase, they said because there was money on the card they couldn't take it back.

Today 12 29 14 I tried using the card and it was refused. Again I call NetSpend only to find out I had a balance of $39.50 out of $50.00 which I haven't spent a dime. I was furious and told...

I lost my original Debit card when I lost my wallet and I applied for a new one so I ordered one and had it RUSH delivered to my home. Well when I called their so called customer service they could not tell me the shipper or tracking # and had NO ACCESS TO THAT INFO and by the way they are charging my account $25 for the shipping of the new card. And they have NO WAY OF CONTACTING PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN COMPANY to find that info out and THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE? I called corporate and you only get their automated service and unless you know an extension # you GET NOBODY and NO OPERATOR IS EVER AVAILABLE....

Hello -

My name is David Ruffin and I have been a loyal netspend customer for quite some time now. I am writing you to discuss how displeased I am about a situation that I have incurred with netspend and it's employees that now has me at a loss with $163.95. To make a very long story short I had a dispute with a merchant QVC that resulted in me winning the dispute per mastercards guidelines. I disputed this transaction back in April and the dispute was won June 2nd. The representative that I spoke with back in April did not include the 2nd charge for the exact same dollar and...

Both my checking and savings account have been have been cleaned out!!! I immediately contacted them!!! An unauthorized account transfer often referred to as a P2P was sent to someone named Julie White. To make matters even worse, my savings account was zeroed out as well, with no explanation at all. I asked her how someone could access my access codes and she just said, " it will be reviewed and we will be in touch." That's it, that's all the response I received. I've been with them for 5 years. I've never had a problem ever before!!! I then asked her how long before...

NetSpend - fraudulently stole funds

I had paid my wife's insurance premium using my NetSpend card.
My wife had an accident and totaled the vehicle. We canceled our insurance policy and they refunded our policy payments retroactively to the date of the accident. The insurance company sent 2 refunds to the card they had on record (NetSpend). One on Thursday and another on Friday. A day later my account was frozen without notice or explanation.

When I called customer service (and I use that title very loosely because they're third world country customer service representatives are barely understandable)...

Completed my tax return with turbotax on February 2nd. I chose the option to receive my return on a card provided by Netspend. The money was deposited on the card from the IRS on February 13th. When I tried to activate the card, Netspend said that there is a block on the card, and to FAX my ID, SS card, and a utility bill. I did twice and was told that the FAX wasn't clear enough. I was then told that my money was returned back to the IRS. I'm very worried that I will never get my money. I suggest we all do something about this because this very unfair...
