Money Network / won't release my money

My pay went on this "money network check acct. " for about 3 months. I didn't use the card because of a transaction fee to withdraw my money using the card. I waited until all my money was done going on the card so i could withdraw all with one check. A few months went by and when i called to find out the total, they said that the account had a hold on it. To release this hold i had to fax my ss card and a license. I did this. Then i called and they said i had to fax them a copy of my passport because of the "patriot act". I am 17 and don't have a passport. I was then told i needed to give them a school id or a credit card. So again i faxed my license and a credit card. When i called back they said they never received this. Now i have faxed to them all three, license, credit card and ss card. Now they have said that my address is different on my license then it is on their file. So they cant release my money again. Even my district manager called and got the run around. Now what do i do. They owe me three months pay!

    I went throught the exact same thing! i'm 17 and when i told my dad about it (hes an attorny) he was sooooo mad. he called them up and said there is no reason for not giving me my money. he asked for the supervisor and she gave us a fax number to the bank of money network. I had to send a call back number, address, and signature to close the account and get my money. the best part is thought if they send me even one cent short they are going to be sued. they can not deny you your hard earned cash!

    My girlfriend has the same problem with them, but talking about it on a site, doesnt help taking legal action against them, so all of us need to complain to whoever allows them to operate...FYI...the people that try to tell you how they never had a problem with the card, and how it is so awesome using this card, are the actual people that work for that not let them fool you...

    My money was stolen at a gas station in Santo Domingo, Domminican Republic.How did the thieves get the PIN and the card number, I was never out of the US.I have done everything the Money Network has told me to do, to return the money, but they have not returned all the monies that were stolen.It has been over 30 days, now.Fees have been charged to my card for everything from "Lost card", it was not talking to a LIVE person at Money Network.My Account summary sheets do not have the correct balances on them.I call Money Network every week and have even been to the local police to try to get my money back.Still no response, from Money Network, on the "Lost Monies".I have even contacted the Better Business Bureau in Denver Colorado to try to get this issue resolved.They need to be shut down, I agree.

    Money Network received my tax refund through direct deposit on 2/5/2014. I called on 2/7/2014 to ask why the funds have not been released yet. There is a hold on my money to not be released until the 10th. Asked for a supervisor to take the hold off of my account and was told some ### about she has verified my IRS information and they have already notified me of the 14 day waiting period (lies and more lies). She then told me that I should be happy that they are releasing the money on the 10th, they could hold it until the 15th if they wanted. Lesson Learned. Money network is a scam, they are holding our money purposely. I assume the longer they hold it the more interest Meta Bank makes off of it. I will never use this ### again.

    Money sent me a check #116465929 for $6.49 for what was left in my account that was closed. But as you can guess what happened, It BOUNCED!!! I contacted them and they said to sent them a copy of the "HOT" check and they would issue another check. I did all that! But a replacement check has never has been received and if so it probably would have BOUNCED as well.
    I am retired and manage to barely survive on a very small fixed amount. And then a supposedly major "company " STIFFS me with a HOT check. Are they that short of money that they have to pick on poor retirees? I sure would never sign up to do any business with this type of shady corporation. They should be fined and put in jail!!! I guess my next step is to filed a complaint with a governmental agency regarding their questionable procedures and actions. They must be pretty hard up for money to issue a "HOT" check for such a small amount. Beware of doing any business with them.!!!

    Money network has the worst possible customer service ever. It's been almost 3 weeks that I've tried to get my money from them. I called to cancel a check that was lost and they said I would have to wait 10 days which is fine. Called 10 days later and they said it would be 3 days for it to credit back. A week went by. Called again and they said nothing was done to it previously so I had to wait 3 more days. Still waiting for my money. The customer service people just constants apologize "Sorry for the inconvenience. Sorry Sir." Over and over again. They should actually do things right the first time. America needs to stop outsourcing.

    Money network has my money on hold for two months. I've scanned my SS and my number. They said they never received. I've faxed this around three times. When i call customer service they dont do anything to help except say that the last 6 digits of my social security number are wrong. I dont know what else to do, it's not like they have an office where i can complain personally.

I went thru all the steps you take by filing a dispute, now they will not release my 400.00 dollars till after January 13th of 2012, and my money was stolen from my account in the middle of November, to make matters even worse, my dispute represenitive will not return ANY of my phone calls Im so pissed I cannot see straight.. I don't know what to do except burn their phones up all day to find out why they cannot put MY money back on my account...

    @Jackie Briggs Its not money network who got your money. Its the merchant itself. You should be responsible for your own card. If you have a dispute, settle it with the merchant

    Money Network Sucks! Where is my money for the money network voided check. They said 24 hours or 38 hours. Get off your lazy ### and put our money back on our payroll account. It is so easy and fast to subtract or money, but so so hard and slow to put money back on our account.

    This is all bull s!! I dont understand how this company could do this. They put my card on hold so i called and they said that i need to send my ss and my id to prove my identity which by the way is stupid to be sending my things like that. 3 weeks later i got no call or the hold didnt get lilfted. So i called again and said i had to write it in a piece of paper like are you serious? I dont have time for that. I have a whole bunch of stuff to do. So Money Network yo can kiss my ###! I will get my money!

    They have had a hold on my account for OVER two months! Get direct deposit if your job only offers money network. They asked for Id and SS card faxed it then they said they needed a bill with my fiancé's name on it with his signature stating I lived with him and they told me the bill had to be notorized. Soo insane. I work hard for my money and they are withholding it for no reason. It should be enough at I validate who I am.

    Unable to transfer my balance to my debit card. Can't find no dollar general or. Money network card in not one store. Can't reach customer service unless I have a money network card. I have a reload pak I cannot use or I cannot get funds transferred to another card. Even the store i purchased the money pak from don't even carry the debit card that works with the money network pak.
