Walmart Money Card - Visa Prepaid Card Through Ge Money Bank And Green Dot Corp / put unauthorized hold on account and a cant get reps on phone

United States Review updated:

I have been using my walmart money card for about 2 years. It has been very nice and convient. The fees were even better than a banks. But I did not authorize a transaction and they charged it. I called to get it credited back on my account and they told me much like the others I see I had to wait 10 days. I stupidly get my check direct deposited on this account and they have placed a hold on the account. So I have NO access to my money. now when I try and call customer service it will not let get through to a LIVE person. It keeps telling me that my account is not found. Please dont make the same mistakes that I did. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

    The complaint number for Green Dot is a Phillippine phone bank. When you call and make a complaint about stolen money, they say 'hold on for corporate offices', and hang up the phone. Someone at a local merchant skimmed the numbers from my daughters moneycard, and we caught it 14 hours later. I called the Walmart Money Card number, they claimed everything was OK, and the money would be put back on my account, and the transaction cancelled. I immediately filed a police report, notified the merchant (who told me it was a large Hispanic gentleman using multiple cards to make a large purchase, my daughter is small and white, and the card was in our home). I found that a week later, Green Dot /Walmart Money had AGAIN transferred the amount to the merchant, after the police report was filed, after the merchant was notified, and after I had been told on the phone by Green Dot/Walmart everything was fine. Now they will not take my calls, refuse to transfer me to a supervisor (I don't think they have one, just a few people in a call center in a slum part of Manila) and I am left in the cold for $300. There is NO security when you use this card, and YOU WILL lose your money.
