    Green Dot Prepaid Visafailure to release my money

    I purchased a Green Dot cash reload card in the amount of $300 and a Green Dot prepaid card and then opened an account on the web and then loaded my prepaid card with the cash reload card. I then made one purchase on the web for phone time for my cell and within hours after doing so they blocked my account. I called and they said my account was blocked for the reason of unusual activity and i needed to send them my ID documents by Fax. I have sent them Faxes and emails with my documents and they continue to deny ever receiving them. This company is running a scam against the unsuspecting public and I warn everyone not
    to ever get involved with this company. My remaining balance of $288 is still blocked from me.

      MoneyPakwent to use money off card.

      Hi my name is Bridget Hall, and I loaded 177.00 on a Green Dot Money card on July 7, 2014. I went to use the card and there was no money on my card. I called
      customer service, and was told that I had to put in an complaint. I am very upset,
      about this situation, cause I am a single parent, and I do not have money to throw away. I can be reached at [protected] or [protected]. Thanking you in advance.

        Walmart Money Card (Green Dot Bank)loading the card

        i bought the $6 walmart preffered card (the black one with no loading fees) and loaded $50 bucks on it, i went to walmart and loaded it several times with various amounts, but apparently, even though you can load the temporary card while you wait for the permanent card, (says use this temp card until you receive your permanent card right on the package the card comes in...i had 2 different walmart employees tell me that they are not allowed to load money onto the temporary cards! which completely contradicts the statement on the cards packaging! also if you have money refunded to you buy a store or ebay, be prepared to see it as a pending transaction for 10 ###ing days, even though it takes less than 30 seconds for it to be taken out of your account, and the foreigner that you get on the phone when you actually manage to get a human on the phone...because corporations like to outsource and evade fair wages and american taxes...because they care so much about the us economy, and creating jobs for americans and such...anyhow when you get a hard to understand indian/arab/sand spic on the phone, hope you like hearing i'm sorry there is nothing i can do, because that is the extent of their customer service...they pay afaragistanis crap wages overseas to be sorry all day for your woes created by a crap company that really just wants to nickel and dime you out of your hard earned money...bottom line! 10 ###ing days to have money funded back on to your card! ### customer service, and sorry indians on the phone...walmart green dot cards, thats what your paying for when you buy one...walmart wont even put money on their own temp cards...i hope they all die like the people in total recall...the original...hope every last one of sam waltons descendants rot in hell! i'm sure anyone who works at walmart has mutual feelings, unless they havent got their first check yet, then i would understand...

          MoneyPakfraud / scam

          Somebody just called from SDGE Disconnection Department and asked for $770 for our passed due bill otherwise they were on their way to disconnect our electricity. They suggested to get same day payment and get a money pak. I rushed to the closest Rite Aid and got the money pak, gave the numbers to supposedly SDGE agent. He said his name was Brian and he called from [protected]. I suspected and ask for his supervisor, address, agent number, etc. he hung on on me.

            Greendot Money pak and Greendot Visaneeded a refund

            I called in to apply a $100 money pak to a Green dot Visa card and when I called I was told by the automated phone service that the Visa card I had was non reloadable and I would get a refund. So I waited about 2 weeks and no refund, so I went on the web to find where I file a complaint for the refund, there are so many sites to choose from, so I just chose the fraud complaint form and filled it out and and I should have filled out a refund form, yes I did the wrong form, but it doesn't end there,

            Two days ago I went to the store to use my Account Now prepaid Visa card and it was declined and so I call the Account Now to see what was going on my account as I had money on the account. I was told it was suspended by Green dot. I have not heard from Green dot about what is happening to my claim and why the suspended my Account Now account as I am waiting to get my Social Security deposited in my account. I can not find a phone number to call to talk to the claims dept. I was given a phone number by Account Now and it was the wrong number. I need to know what is happening to my account and my social security check. I am 67 yrs old and live on my check to come in on time to my account. Please help me.

            Thank you

                  I'm going through the same thing. I refuse to ignore the impact this company's bad business practices is having on the homeless crisis... Pay Pal and Ebay just settled a claim out of court for this. If anyone is ready to take this court, I have been digging and found numerous legal issues with this company. They can be sued! They can also be fined and should be criminally prosecuted...

                Green Dot 3 Cash Advancedishonest company

                I decided to apply for the short term loan in company Green Dot 3 Cash Advance. I filled the form and waited for the call, and after several days the agent from the company contacted me. He told me to buy Green Dot card and put $180. After I did it, he called me again and told to put more money. After I transferred money to this Green Card, I waited for the loan. But this scammer cheated on me. He simply stole money from me. So be careful if you use this company or leave comments if you had horrible experience with these people.

                          Before you purchased that green dot someone had had copied the hidden pin # and put the card back. They either covered the code back up or left it open and you just didn't notice. When you loaded money they entered that pin before you did and spent the money. Sorry you lost your money, but there is absolutely nothing Green dot can do about it.

                        Green Dotpoor customer service

                        I purchased a green dot debit card a year ago and have used this as my checking account. I have also used this card to have my payroll check direct deposited to my account. Two days ago, I purchased a money pack card to upload money on to my account. When I called the 1-800 number to load the money, the operator tells me that there is a hold on my card. The hold was put in place because they suspected "unusual activity" on the account. Keep in mind, i've had this card for a year and have made the same purchases. I was told that I couldn't use the card anymore, I couldn't buy another green dot card, and I would have to wait 10 days to receive my refund for the money pack card. They also told me that they are sending back my payroll check to my employer and it would take two days for my company to receive it. I have rent to pay and children to feed. I can't afford to not receive my pay check on time. I was expecting to get paid this friday, it may take two weeks for me to receive it now. When I ask them what purchases I made that looked suspicious, they will never give me a straight answer. I have never been this angry with a company before in my life!!!

                            I was charged $239.99 for a yearly fee for spy ware. I was told I would still be charged from $100 and up for a hard problem. Now that they have my money they won't return my phone calls. At first it was like talking to a different company I hate to see what happens today when I cancel them all together.

                            Hi I have been a customer of green dot since 2011 I have my payroll check directly deposited to my grren dot card. I obtained this green dot card by no choice of my own. I was doing my Federal tax refund and as usual i wanted my refund directly deposited, so back at that time Turbo tax had their on debit cards but they sold their debt card business to Green dot so thats I how unwillingly obtained a green dot card. So I received my new green dot card 2011 in replace of the turbo tax card and every year I would have my fed tax refund credited to my green dot card. This year I decided to purchase a new green dot card and have my tax refund directly deposited onto this new acct, will tax refund posted 3/12/15 i was able to do 2 transactions before being declined, I called green dot and was told there is tax fraud out there and they needed to verify my identification I was givin the web site to upload my ID and I gave the information on my drivers license so green dot would be able to ID me however today 3/14/15 I'm told hey can't match me with any ID's that was loaded, I'm furious I have no heat/hot water and a child with asthma and I was waiting for my tax refund to pay my bill, I explained this to all the reps I spoke to a green dot but still being told I have to wait 2 business days for review- No HUMANITY what's so ever, worst customer service dept ever, I encourage everyone NOT to PURCHASE A GREEN DOT CARD. I asked for the name and # of the CEO at green dot and was told I couildn't get this information- WHat kind of business denies the right to the name of the CEO of a company where you do business????. As soon as I get my money released I'm going to cancel both cards the 1st one where I have direct deposit of my payroll checks and the 2nd one where I have this current tax refund. I notified the better business bureau and the new york times and will also notify the Hartford Currant newspaper in my state of CT and the local TV news WFSB

                          Green Dot Moneypak Cardmoney pak lost my money

                          Beware don't purchase this card!!! My name is kimberly from montgomery alabama. On september 23, 2013 I went to my local walgreens store to purchase a green dot moneypak card. I loaded $460.00 onto the card at 4:06pm, at 4:08pm (2 minutes later) I went to my car and called the number to activate the card to up load the money onto my prepaid debit rush card. Well the card said zero balance and the store told me I can not get a refund back from them that I will need to contact the green dot moneypak company in order to get a refund. So I did that and they told me to fax them the receipt and a copy of the moneypak card and they will contact me on october 7, 2013 (10 bussiness days). So I did that and waited hoping that I will get my money back, however, on october 4, 2013 I called them back to check the status and they told me they are not responible to refund me my money and that I need to call my local police department because my card has been used, but green dot will not tell me where it was used, what time it was used or how much was used. Green dot company was no help at all!!! I am a fulltime student with a fulltime job and a single mother of two small kids. That money was to pay my carnote and I had to put off some other bills in order to pay that bill and I am still out of $460.00 and this company is no help!!!

                              I was scammed after I scratched the card, I heard someone take a phone photo but I was talking with a family member and I didn't think anything about it. The number on the card is [protected]. I have lost the money so I could care less, however if you could check phone that accessed the number ($65 worth of min or usage) and just cancel out their min/usage I would greatly appreciate it. I don't care about the money but they should not be allowed to use the time. I have the card in my possession.

                            Green Dot Moneypakscam money

                            I have been scammed by a group of people over phone call asking
                            For penalty fees and security deposit regarding visa documents. I have been asked
                            To buy money pak vouchers. After 2 hrs I realized its all scam nd they trapped my money.
                            I immediately called money pak service and gave all the voucher no's and asked to consider all those as dispute transaction. Now they know where the money is transferred but still they say they cannot return my money back. Please suggest me anything on this.

                              Walgreen Pharmacy/GreenDotfraud

                              My wife's coworkers purchased a greendot card in the amount of $200 as a gift to provide funds to visit her daughter in the hospital. I activated the card for her on 9/11, the day she received it, and attempted to use it on 9/12 to purchase goods and get her some cash. THE CARD WAS REFUSED. I immediately took the card and materials along with the receipt to Walgreens where it was purchased. The manager help me contact greendot. In the fine print we found two things:
                              1) Walgreen will not stand behind greendot and refund the purchase price of $202.95 after they verified there was still $200 on the card.
                              2) Greendot will not allow cash to be drawn from the card for a minimum of 15 days.

                              All of this information is hidden inside sealed plastic and on receipts put in your bag after you pay. The bottom line is stay away from Walgreens because of they can screw a senior, it's bonus time. Also never buy a card that cannot be activated at time of purchase and where you cannot immediately use the cash.

                              Walgreens ought to be ashamed to be complicit in basically stealing the use of emergency money. All of this should be disclosed on signs and explained by the clerk.

                                  I recently went to Walgreens to purchase a Green Dot Money Pak card for $100.00.
                                  A screen popped up on their computer demanding a State issued photo ID. I informed the clerk that I didn't engage in the occupation of driving thus I had no Drivers License. I also told the clerk that I did not work for the state, nor was I a subject or slave of the state, thus I did not possess a State ID. Well needless to say, they wouldn't complete the transaction. I went to CVS across the street and purchased my card with no problems. Hello CVS, good by Walgreens. Walgreens is certainly in bed with the powers that be to bring about their One World Totalitarian Government. SAY NO TO THE NWO!!

                                Green Dot Moneypakreload issue

                                On 9/3/2013 I purchased a green dot money pack from walgreens in sacramento california. At 9:55pm befor I purchased the card I picked up 2 extra cards for future purchase so as not to run into the inconvenience of going to a store that do provide a green dot reload but don't have any money packs in the store. But a mixup happened with the other two cards and the actual card I put the money on, so as it were I tried to find the card that actually had the 60. 00 dollars on it by trying all the money packs till I got the right card, well I had no idea that this would freez my account and my money for 10 business day's till a investigation is conducted. This should be a notification on the actual money pack, explaining what will happen to you if you try to loade blank money packs! It was the only way I knew how to find the right money pack number. After talking to several peoople and asking if my aunty could load the money on her card it has been mistaken that the money pack belongs to her and now they want to send her my check. All I wanted to do was pay my phone bill. Now my service will be turned of and my money sent to someone els for making a simple mistake. Woooow is me. : (

                                    I don't quite understand what your problem was... I have had a green dot card for years and have never once had a problem with it. I bought the card, it took a while for the actual card to show up but it did. I buy reloader packs when I need them, usually several times in a month. They sell them all over. At walgreen, rite aid, cvs, ralphs, walmart, etc... You buy the reloader pack, go home and enter the reloader pack onto your card... I use my computer but you can also do it via the phone through their automated service... NEVER a problem... I use my card to pay my bills, my rent, on amazon, etc... I have no idea why you would EVER buy 3 CARDS... I mean you would apply 3 times to visa for 3 separate cards from them, right? I think the multiple cards is what confused your account cause it looks like something phishy is going on -- not saying anything is, but that's what it appears. I have no idea how your relative got the money... I think you left something out in your explanation.

                                  Green Dot/money Pakfraud scammers

                                  They do not work with law enforcement! They do not help the local authorities. My poor police officer got switched to so many different so called legal hot lines. They never released the source that got my money!! These people are crooks that help crooks they hide behind this so called list, but when law enforcement steps in and you don't release the information that appears to be obstruction of justice. They have no helped or been cooperative at all!! They send out the same above generic message about this so called list of venders you have to read. When someone threatens you with a criminal bench warrant how many people are going to read this list??? Plus they have blacklisted them. They know who it is and wont tell. They support the criminal not the customer!!! Run!!
