      I am in the same boat as you! I ordered my card in the beginning of April and was told it would arrive by April 23rd (which I thought was a long time). The next week, I had to buy another card and put it in my boyfriend's name to use it. He got his card a week later! It's been 3 weeks and I'm STILL waiting on mine. No more! I am done! Once everything is used up on his card, we are dropping this company like a hot coal!

    Green Dot Moneypakthey stole my money!

    Green Dot money card took my 150 dollars and said that I took the money from myself ! they told me that they saw where the funds went but they will not tell me where but told me that I had to sue the person that took my fun but they will not tell me who did it. I purchase and 150 dollar money pack from Rite Aid I called Kohl's department store and was placing an online order when I remembered that I had loaded my visa yet so I called on the 3 way with the representative on the phone from Kohl's and try to load my moneypak in which they told me my phones are being sent to my other card. I do not own another moneypak card or visa Green Dot card so I called them and they said they would investigate and at the end of their investigation they decided to say that I was the 1 that access to the funds and they refuse to give me my money back. Who do I call for help or do I have to go to the Philippines and try to retrieve the money myself?

      Please don't take a loan from this number [protected], it's a scam I was stupid enought to send this guy name mark 450$ for a loan of 3000. When he received it he called me back and said 450 more because of my bad credit, which I believed him because my credit I terrible so I sent it again through a green dot card they took the money and called back and said I had to pay off one of my existing pay day loans which I do have a past over due payday loan mark said send them the 390 which is the amount of my other loan so I did, so stupid!!! After I did that then he called back saying it was another problem with getting the loan because they had to pay the lawyer who susposly took care of other pay day loan. That's when I just new for shore it was a scam. These people beat me out of 1300$, that I borrowed from friends and family members. When I told him that I wanted to cancel the process because I'm not giving anymore money to them he told me I couldn't get none of my money back and there's no one I could talk to. If you are reading I was so stupid and in need of money because I was laid off for a whole month I didn't take a minute and think. Please don't be like me and deal with these guys they are all scammers. This scam they played on me have ruined my life I'm in serious debt and there's no way I can my money back

              I went on 9/15/12 to an ATM that is on the list from Green Dot, as a no surcharge fee ATM. I was going to be charged a fee to get my ATM withdraw. I selected that I did not accept the surcharge and the transaction was cancelled. Prosperity withdrew the money from my account and I can seem to get my money back. I have called Green Dot Customer and I seem to get the run around. I have filled a claim with Green Dot. First I was told I would have my money back 9/26/12. 9/27/12 I still do not have my money. All I get is a run around and it will be 10 days. I called 9/19 I was given a date of 10/1/12. I called today was told the date would be 10/4. The date gets pushed out even further. The money withheld is $165.00. This is half of a pay check for me and I need my money that I work hard for. I want my money, or I will be forced to take legal action. This is bank robbery, the bank robbed me. I have the receipt to prove I did not get the money.

            MoneyPakwill not refund money after several attempts

            I purchased a Moneypak at Walgreens. I attempted to put the money into my paypal account, but it was not accepted due to their computer system not accepting my address. I called, but they could not help me. I requested a refund check. I waited the required 2 weeks. They told me twice that the check had been mailed. After the third call and several "holds", I was transferred to Nolita who admitted to me the check was NEVER sent. She said she would send it Fedex and it would be here no later than 1/15. It never showed up. I called and was told absolutely nothing. Said supervisor would call me back, they had no tracking number, and just a series of holds. This place is a SCAM!!! Beware!!!

              MoneyPakstole my money

              I purchased a moneypak card from a store, paying a 4.95$ servicing fee. I put 30$ on the card, intending to put the money on my paypal. I opened the link from paypal, and it brought me to the green dot site, asking me to put in my code, specificly stating that the 30$ would be put on my paypal. After submiting my information, I recieved a message saying the would not put my money on paypal, but send my 30$ in the mail via check, but keep my 5$ servicing charge. This company stole my 5$ and I wont recieve the rest of my money for 1-3 weeks.

                Green Dot Moneypakone time use

                I have purchased Moneypaks before and loved them till today, I put $90.00 in one to send some to PayPal and send the rest to my Rushcard and no where on the card does it say you can only use the code in one place I was under the impression that you can no longer use it when there's $0.00 in it, if I knew then I would have dumped it all in my Rushcard then send some of the money to my PayPal account. After calling them and explaining my situation they said they couldn't help me saying I can only use the code once and you can not change how much you can take out of the Pak (well if that was the case then I wouldn't be calling you now would I?) did not even asking me for information to see if I was telling the truth and made it sound like I was trying to get free money out of them and that really made me mad I just said enjoy my money then thief. I will never use Green Dot again.

                  My greendot card expired, they didn't send me a new one and have kept my money. Every time I call they state the card is on it's way. I stopped direct deposit because I haven't received a card and they are hitting my card now with monthly fees even though I don't even have a card. I sent a BBB complaint, yet no respnse. Hurry and take your money out this card before it expires.

                    Green Dotgreen dot scam

                    Green Dot SUCKS! I used to have $500 of every paycheck deposited onto my Green Dot prepaid card to waive the fees.

                    This worked great until random stores across the country somehow drained my account.

                    I investigaed.

                    A CVS in North Carolina took $13.41 from my Green Dot account. Incidentally, my account balance at the time was *EXACTLY* $13.41!!

                    I called Green Dot 2 or 3 times, they said wait till it is not pending, it will go away. I asked Green Dot to give me more information about the transaction. They told me that it was a PIN transaction and they told me the exact time it occurred. I cross-referenced that information by calling the store manager, and he confirmed that no such transaction ever took place at his store. (Which, again, was several thousand miles away from where I live.)

                    Of course it didn't go away, the transaction finalized. I called green dot back and they finally credited me for $13.41.

                    Then a week later the exact same thing happened, at a different store, and this time again DRAINED MY ACCOUNT! The transaction amount was equal to my card balance!!!

                    This leads me to believe that:

                    Someone (a fraudster) who WORKS FOR greendot is taking people's money away by making fake transactions.

                    I stopped using green dot and will be trying out bluebird in the near future.

                          Walmart Money / Green Dot Cardloaded money to wrong card

                          Sent my husband to walmart to load $500 on the walmart /Green dot card. he gave the customer service person the card she ran it gave him the receipt. reference # [protected] He called me so I could pay bills. I went to pay and the card was declined I called him he brought the receipt to Walmart and come to find out they some how put the money on a different card. They told my husband that he gave them the wrong card and we were trying to rip them off. He told them to cancel the transaction and he would take his money back. they told us there was nothing that they could do we had to call green dot. called green dot they said there was nothing they could do we had to go back to Walmart they processed the transaction. There has to be a way to get my money back. we do not make a lot of money and this really really really hurts. So please if anyone knows what to do please. We are NOT ripping anyone off, it almost seams like the person behind the counter ran a different card. We asked to see the security film and the manager at walmart refused. So maybe it is a computer error, they are not perfect. please i need my money!!! help Please !!!

                            Green Dot Prepaid Cardplethora of problems

                            It took ten months for me to receive my "real" greendot Mastercard after purchasing the "temporary" card and going through the whole hullabaloo with registering. I activated the card quickly using the number on the card, but that's where the "ease" of working with greendot seemed to end. I fought for no less than two hours with the greendot website over the issue of the security questions which, apparently, after you click "save" on the website, never ACTUALLY, REALLY get saved onto their servers to wit: not only did I change one of the security questions to "what city was your mother born in" on three different occasions, but I also correctly typed the name of the city into the "answer" space three times. Each time I tried to log in, I was hit with the "what city was your mother born in?" question, answered it correctly, and encountered an error message which states "this does not match the information provided in our system." Two hours of this. This AFTER, mind you, that I spent ANOTHER hour on that website registering my card (apparently even though you do this on the phone with greendot, what you do on the phone with them doesn't matter nearly as much as what you do on the web) but have issues entering the CVN. Now, I'm not an idiot, and so I can type three little numbers. I entered those three little CVN numbers no less than six times, and each time I was told "this number does not match the information in our system." In spite of the fact that the numbers- the three numbers I had entered six times- were printed in black ink on the back of a plastic card that sat no less than two inches away from my computer screen. Miraculously- and I say miraculously as nothing, in any of the information that I entered no less than 12 times, was EVER changed in any way, shape or form, including spelling, capitalization or what have you- I was allowed to log in to the green dot system and found much to my chagrin that the account, the card to which I literally JUST RECEIVED TODAY, was "closed due to a lost or stolen card" (I never reported my card lost, stolen or damaged) and I was told that I should "wait for [my] new card to arrive." On top of ALL of this, both their customer service hotline AND their "live online chat" are closed and I will have to wait until TOMORROW to get in contact with them. Horrid, HORRID experience thus far- and I've only been an actual, literal, "card holding greendot customer" for...what has it been...three hours? I shudder to think about what else these folks will find a way to befoul.

                              back on July 20Th i payed my insurance and phone bill, on July 23rd direct TV pulled almost 600 out of my green dot money card without my consent but the funny thing is They didn't pay my ins and phone bill but i paid the ins and phone first on the 20th, i still don't have my money and i have no ins and a disconnect notice on my phone. now today i bought a new card from walmart so i would have a different card, they took my money that i needed to pay bills and when i went to activate it they said that i can't have a card cause i disputed direct tv and this is the same company i don't have a signed contract with, now the green dot card has my money and direct tv has my money about 1100 dollars worth not counting what all i have lost. now i think walmart, green dot, and Ge capitol bank should be held responsible, i would like to Get enough people to Get a class action suite against all three, my email is steel.[protected]@hotmail.com. when they steel all of are money who will shop at walmart or have money for the bank or order direct tv. something has to be done. green dot said they called and left a message if so with who and do you think if they would have told me that i couldn't have a card over there screw up to start with i dang sure wouldn't have handed them another 720.00 $ and i have all the proof.

                                  i did contact green dot and they said it was my fault when i paid the bill with my card, and i did file a complaint and the letter said that they reviewed it and they did nothing wrong so how can they tell me that when the dispute was over them Getting money without my consent that they did nothing wrong and yes green dot manages your card well Get another manager or fix there mistakes it's your card, times are hard and i pawned my guns to pay these bills now I'm out 600 for my guns and interest is growing, no ins and still trying to pay my phone, would GE capitol let people draw money without permission if so i wouldn't bank there either. fix there mistakes and prove to us your the better bank.

                                  The issue is with Direct TV not green dot. Direct TV and Dish TV routinely debit your cards to get bonus payments. They are predatory companies and should be put out of business!

                                Green Dot/ Money Pakstole $460 total from me

                                I Originally went to a 7-11 to put money on a money pak refill card, $260. I went home to put the money from the refill card on to my Green Dot credit card. To my surprise there was only $100 on the refill card not the $260 I paid at the 7-11 not 20 min before.So after returning to the place of purchase I was told I needed to call green dot. So I did and they told me they would check into it and let me know the following day. It has been 3 weeks since I bought the $260 refill card. I now have all of my accounts with them suspended and regret to let me know this so in the mean time I went to buy another GD credit card and load $200 on this card. Of course it let me put the money on the card but guess what with my accounts being frozen I lost that $200 as well. And when i asked why my accounts were closed i was told due to suspicious activity. Are you [censored]ING KIDDING ME!!! When I asked for a example of what suspicious activity they saw to close my account they couldnt tell me. But what i got from it is they didnt like what I was spending MY money on.FYI I am buying things off Ebay. Thats what I do with the GD cards. So anyone doing purchasing with GD and Ebay watch out as well cause green dot my freeze your accounts. So Now I need to jump thru more hoops send in more faxes of proof of purchases(which I already have done for the privious $260) and if they feel its vaild then they MIGHT give me my total of $460 back. People I am so [censored]ing mad I would love if this comapny was taken out of business. So now I out $460 and now no credit cards to pay bills or decide what I want to spend my money on. I WILL NEVER USE GREEN DOT AGAIN!!! They STOLE YES STOLE $460 of my money i had trusted with there company. [censored] GREEN DOT / MONEY PAK!!!

                                  Green Dotworst pre-paid credit card company ever!!!

                                  Wow... I bought a green dot pre-paid credit card to take care of some business that I had to do online. First off they told me I couldn't register my card because apparently I already had a previous green dot card from years earlier that I must've forgot about. Okay... After I hung up the phone I had more questions. Everytime I tried to call back there was absolutely no options to talk to anybody!!! It was so aggravating!!! They kept telling me to enter my card number if I wanted to talk to someone and everytime I did the machine would say "you're refund was requested on 'blah blah blah etc.' thank you and goodbye. And then they would literally hang up the phone on me. I swear to god I have never been so annoyed with any other company before in my entire life. Don't ever use this company they're the worst!!! Ugh so mad.

                                      wow, the same thing happened to me. It's the worst company ever. I was on hold for two hours yesterday, then a woman took my card number and said I had to speak with a specialist, after two and a half hours of that, I hung up, utterly defeated. I've never felt so powerless.

                                    Green Dot Walmartmoney card

                                    Warning!! If you never want to see your paycheck money, put it on a walmart money card or lord forbid on direct deposit. You will never see any of your paycheck money in cash…
                                    Ever again!!! I had a walmart money card for a couple of years and used it sporadically and it worked okay. Recently when my bank started charging alot of fees and held my auto deposits over the weekend I started my direct deposit going on the walmart money card. Suddenly there are 2 unknown online charges on my card, the robot-like asian customer service people could not answer my questions because it was not on their script, they could not tell me where the charges came from and they would not forward me to an american supervisor and refused to send me to the survey they offer at the end of the call and then disconnected my call. They said they could not tell me who made the first charge and could not block it (It was still pending). I purchased another card to move my paycheck money into until I could get my direct deposit stopped. I paid $ 3 to open it and I received the permanent card yesterday and I received another ‘monthly’ fee when I have only had the card 10 days. I called to dispute that and they did remove that second fee however… they get you coming and going on fees unless it is an automatic deposit and then that is when your nightmare begins.!! Your paycheck is automatically deposited and you expect to get some cash, right? Dream on!! They have policies that restrict you from getting any of your hard earned money in cash!!! These people running the “walmart money card show” that ‘now have your cash’ are non-americans, probably chinese because customer support is somewhere in asia and they are using our funds to support them, because they certainly are not letting us have our money after we have made our deposit.in order to use the money I had on my one compromised card, I had to make an online purchase (Even though the unauthorized charge was from an online purchase), I did that and had the card closed. However when the second unauthorized purchase credited me back (After I called them and said it was unauthorized) I can’t get that money and walmart money card refuses to transfer it to my new card I bought because of the unauthorized charges. They said they had to send me a check for the balance…checks in the mail…yea right, we will see if that happens. After I had my auto-deposit transferred to my replacement card, I went to get a money order for my house payment and some cash. Customer service said they could do the money order but I could not access my payroll deposit and get cash, as it is against their policy.

                                    After all this, my direct deposit finally ended and I had a balance of $24.25 on my card, I wanted nothing more than to clear that balance and close that card. Guess what??? I could not!! I went to walmart and tried to make a purchase of $44 and tried to use the $24.25 balance against that as a debit and it would not take it, denied. I tried to use it as a credit and it wouldn’t take it, denied. I went to customer service to see if they could make it happen, they could not, denied, even though the available balance said $24.25. They could not give me cash back, denied, they couldn’t run it as a debit or a credit even though they clearly had printed notice that I had $24.25 available. I called the asian customer service from their phone in customer service and after being told by the non-american I had a temporary card, as it said on their script (Which I did not, they obviously did not know what I was talking about (They are chinese after all), to which I asked for an american supervisor, I was left on hold for 15 minutes until they hung up. I wanted to call back but the walmart customer service desk said they could not tie up their only phone line with my calls to the walmart money cards customer service and stated they have no control over any of that because they are not affiliated with them in any way, had nothing to do with the walmart money card people and made many apologies to that effect. The only way I was able to spend the $24.25 of my last payroll deposit was to pay it online against a utility bill, which I did and so far they have not denied it. I don’t know anyone that needs that much hassle to get access to their paycheck!

                                    Walmart is using the american public’s direct deposits to subsidize whatever support they are giving to china. Your deposit on a walmart money card is going to foreigners to use to collect the interest and make investments from, with our hard earned money, overseas!!..
                                    Walmart is un-american for allowing that to happen!!! They don’t even support their widely advertised money cards and direct deposits. Their customer service people, when pushed, say they have nothing to do with the walmart money cards. Your deposits are going directly into who knows who’s bank and you will never see them again. Plus the cards don’t work everywhere, try buying gas at midnight at maverick…it ain’t going to happen with this walmart money card. It’s a pain and could be life threatening in the dead of a wyoming winter night with no gas to get you home!

                                    All americans beware of walmart money cards. Walmart is undermining the financial stability of america with these actions and should be stopped. (This coming from a 12 yr walmart supporter… (When you move from the city to rural wyoming, driving 60 miles to walmart is the only place you can get groceries, home improvement, auto supplies and kids clothes all at once).

                                        I have this card and depositing thousands of dollars in csh it disappeared. I was told it would show up in 10 to 15 days. My SSA direct deposit was made and disappeared also. Never to be found. DO NOT TRUST THIS BANKING alternative. You will never see your money.
