BUYERS BEWARE!!! PURCHASED A PREPAID 130.00 MASTERCARD, WENT ONLINE TO SHOEBUY A MAINE STATE ONLINE COMPANY TO PURCHASE SHOES FOR MY SON BIRTHDAY, ENTERED THE ## ON FRONT OF CARD AND REAR TOLD TO ENTER 3 DIGIT SECURITY #, TRANSACTION CAME BACK NO MATCH? ATTEMPTED AGAIN SAME RESULT NO MATCH? NUMERIUS ATTEMPTS TO REACH MASTERCARD FELL ON DEAF EARS FINALLY CALLRD SHOEBUY WHO VERIFIED TRANSACTION FAILED AND PURCHASE NOT FORTHCOMING, CHECKED CARD BALANCE ON LINE AND LO AND BEHOLD SHOE TRANSACTION WAS DEDUCTED FROM MY PREPAID CARD. FINALLY ABLE TO REACH A REPRESENTATIVE OF MASTERCARD WHO SAID GLITCH IN SYSTEM?? SOMETIMES HAPPEN, BUT THEY WOULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE? SHOEBUY SAID IT WOULD TAKE 30 DAYS TO REFUND THE MONIES??? I EXPLAINED I WAS A PENSIONER AND THIS WAS FOR MY SONS UPCOMING BDAY BUT REGARDLESS 30 DAY TURNAROUND .CALLED REP AT MASTERCARD HE STATED IT CAN NOT BE RETURNED QUOTE IN A BLINK OF AN EYE!!! WELL IN A BLINK OF AN EYE I EXPLAINED I LOST 130.00 WHY THEN IF SHOEBUY COULD TAKE THIS MONEY EVEN THOUGH MASTERCARD SECURITY # DID NOT MATCH WHY? WAS I BEING HELD HOSTAGE WITH MY 130.00 CARD?? NO RESPONSE TO THIS EXCEPT THEY WERE SORRY BUT IN DUE TIME I WOULD GET CREDIT. WELL DUE TIME DOES NOT HELP ME BUY A GIFT AND MY FINANCIAL SITUATION IS SUCH THAT I CAN NOT BUY ANYTHING AS I LIVE DAY TO DAY ON A PENSION AND TRULY FEEL DUPED. IF I WAS A GOLD CARRYING MASTERCARD HOLDER I AM SURE I WOULD BE REIMBURSED IMMEDIATELY NOT 30 DAYS. PLEASE BUYERS OF PREPAID MASTERCARDS BE AWARE AND REALIZE THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY CLAIM TO BE THEY CHARGE HIGH RATES TO BUY AND LOAD AND HIGHER RATES TO USE AND IF A GLITCH OCCURS WELL IN A BLINK OF AN EYE FUNDS DISAPPEAR BUT A LONG SLEEP LATER WILL REAPPEAR NO ACCUMULATED INTEREST FOR KEEPING YOUR FUNDS THOUGH.

    this iridium card is a scam.you get the otion an loading the card online by instant interac, but they get your funds on hold for some imaginary verification of those funds, witch never happened.they charge you monthly fee from this money, but you cannot use it.after many phone calls they pretend on escalading the issue and call you back.nobody will call you back.finally, tired of this playing around game, you call your bank to reverse the money back, but after 3 weeks of dispute, they do reverse back less money than you loaded.say away of them, they just scammers and stealling your money.

    Donnacoc1, I had the same issue as you, got the card to do online transactions, mainly to purchase pc parts . And they put a hold on my money For 1 month now! after talking with their customer service, kept getting the run around, so i started emailing them so that i could keep a record, and they do not reply to their email either, Now i had to open a Complaint with the Better business Bureau. And still waiting to get my money back . STAY AWAY!
