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

We apologize that the wrong account number was provided for your tax refund.

Unfortunately, if a deposit is sent to an account that does not exsist, it will automatically be returned back to the sender. If you have your trace number, please email this to feedback@netspend.com and we will look into this for you.

Thank you,
