Vanilla VisaMisleading/Fraudulent Info

S Review updated:

How do you get a REAL person to respond to a complaint -- and at what number? All I see is the "automated" response number. I received the Vanilla Visa card as a gift in March...then misplaced it. I found it in early June and tried to spent it at J.C. Penney's. I literally ripped open the paper coat, handed it to the clerk...and she said there was only $3.56 on the $25 card! It had only been 3 months (not 13 mos. wherein they deduct $1.50/mo. like the fine print says) says "Your balance never expires, " neither is it an "expired card, " so what gives? How do I get a real person...and get it re-instated?? I can go to Penney's and get a manager on the call, if need be, as I remember the clerk.

    I got a Vanilla Visa Debit Gift card that's supposed to work like a visa credit card. My mom is a single parent and she put all her savings into getting me a gift card. It was rejected and wouldn't activate. My uncle tried to call customer service, but he was hung up on all the time. They gave him other phone numbers that had only recordings. Brooks Smith CEO and President of InComm is a crook and should be in prison. Brooks Smith is a scammer. The people coming here to write positive things about Vanilla work for the company. Vanilla Visa is a fraudulent illegal deceitful enterprise.
