Account Now Visa / they froze my card and won't reply

1 CA, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

In the beginning of May, 2008 I contacted my credit card company (Account Now Visa) and advised them that someone used my credit card without my permission, they said they would investigate and I would hear from they in 30 days, in 30 days I received a letter stating that they couldn't do anything because someone also used my pin number, that was that.

This is July 11th, it is also Friday, I discovered at 2:30pm that account now froze my funds, I called a total of 8 times, Customer Service said the person that froze the accoount, did so because of my complaint in MAY, since then I have mad regular payments, so I cannot for the world understand WHY HAVE THEY FROZE MY ACCOUNT?

No one calls you back, they say they will, but they don't, they keep putting me on hold, I got this card so I don't carry cash, I have no way to get gas, to buy food, I am in real trouble and I told them, I told them I want my money, I answered all their security questions, but they just say someone will call.

    For as many fees they charge - they should have better customer care - obviously that is not a priority for them! they charge for everything - I tried to donate to a non-profit organization via paypal - paypal did not accept this card because "accountnow" stated that the information I entered on paypal was wrong - tried 4 times same responds. NOW, Even though the transaction did not go through "accountnow" charged a fee to every attempt made to donate to this organization via paypal - IN MY OPINION THEY ARE A BUNCH OF CROOKS!!! All they do is charge, charge, run adds up the rear - and yet when we need customer service there is none!!! They also promised/advertised (same thing) $15 at the time I activate direct deposit - WELL - I NEVER SEEN THAT!!! CROOKS!!! I will now start a CAMPAIGN AGAINST THIS COMPANY - I was going to recommend them - NOT NOW!!! NOW I WILL DO THE OPPOSITE!! I will deter everyone I know and then some from doing business with this company and complain to the BBB and the Issuing Bank etc, etc, etc, ... Thank you AccounNow - in my opinion YOU SUCK!!! and a bunch of crooks. FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY YOUR COMPANY CHARGE EVERY CARD HOLDER YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PROVIDE CUSTOMER SERVICE 24/7 but no!!! your office hours are mon-fri till 4pm EST. YOU SUCK!!!

    Account now is restricting people who are using their prepaid service for tax refund purposes from withdrawling, transfering, or simply using their cards to purchase or pay bills online. My incident was very unprofessional and fraudralent when dealing with account now customer service. First off I couldnt understand what the rep was saying then when ask to provide proof of identity and address I had faxed them paper work more than 6 times and each time they kept giving me the run around saying I needed to provide better documents and the same lady was the customer rep, supervisor and etc... I was dealing with the same person each time she changed names as if to be higher up. What I dont get is why put my card on hold when I was using it already for two days then they all of a..sudden block my card and gave me the run around for 400.00 dollars now they claim to have sent it back to irs wow so what now I dont know they scammed me big time

    I have had money from booking a hotel room on hold for over a week. I went to the hotel and they were really nice and spent over 45min on the phone with visa gold green dot and sent a letter to them and giving authorization to free the money which was also done a week prior. The hotel told me that gold visa green dot said the money will be back on the card the next day. Three days later... still no release from the hold and no money on the card. This is ridiculous!!! What are families to do that require their money back in hand within a couple days?? I can understand a day or two but not over a week and especially when they say it will be available the next day and three days pass with no changes that were promised. What should I do now that I was relying on their word to be true and going to use that money (my money that I should be able to use at any time) to put a roof over my families head for two nights. Am I supposed to just accept the fact that we now have to sleep in my truck for the two nights??? Why does it take one second to take the money from the card but weeks to get it back when it is mine to begin with???? My money should be just that... my money. I already pay $10 a month for nothing and not to mention $3.95 every single time I want to add money to my card, but this one is the one that really gets me... charge me 50 cents when I call an automated machine that gives me my balance. What is this world coming to???? Why should I have to pay so many fees... on top of fees... The only thing that is being done is my money is being put on a card (by myself by going and purchasing a card and then calling with the info. to have the money then placed on the card) so suppliers are able to verify that the money is truly my money by having a piece of plastic with my name on it. How does that make it right to take advantage of the consumer and put a hold for a ridiculous amount of time while the consumer ends up sleeping in their vehicle with their three children. Why???

    My account with this company was closed because I didn't use it!!! Had to make several calls to figure out how to get my money. Each call cost $1.00. So the $1000.00 dwindled considerably really fast. The grief these people gave me to get my money was unbelievable. Never any notice that that had closed my account at all. I think they need a class action filed against them. Does anyone know how to do that.
