bought unreadable reload cardfor 500 dollars
they will nottransfer money
have bad card
and no money
I used this card for around a couple of years and all seemed well, until. short story I loaded a few grand with a few moneypaks. And over the next couple months spent the money. during this time i had to get a rental car, the rental company places a hold of $50, for deposit, and as i had the car for a month they placed another hold for $150 and one more for $600. When the car was returned i had a positive amount of approx. $400 in my greendot account. and was very sure of this amount as i kept a tracking system as usual for my spending. Well the car rental company for amazing and exceptional, so as usual they charged me the final amount for my rental of approx. $670. So with a balance of only 400 my account went negative, but only for a few days as the deposits were suppose to drop off within 3 days. Green dot has a manual drop off date of 90 days if the charging company does not take the funds... well within a week the 50 and 150 had dropped off. and my account was still negative $70. after two weeks this did not drop, so I called greendot to see whats up. And all they needed was a confirmation note from the rental company to release funds with a couple of signatures faxed to them... Well the rental was more than happy to help, So I literally did this phone calls with greendot 4 times with the rental company on the phone and they faxed the paper multiple times over the course of a month. These phones calls taking a ridiculous amount of time with many holds and high hold times... but much of mine money was at stake and I am never one to get irrate or mean on the phone since i hate when others do that... But getting back to the complaint... So after many failed attempts I was in no more mood to call and have to re-explain my situation to a new person each call. So i looked at greendots policy and decided to stop using the card and simple wait the 90 days for the manual drop of the deposit and my money to be available. Well the day comes and funny enough the deposit finally dropped ( mind you i checked the account multiple times leading to this point and even the days before, it was still on there). But very annoyingly my account balance was empty, and even worse with a couple of monthly fees tacked on... Like im expected to pay after they stole 500+ from me. So I again call greendot, But this time is absolutely terrible, because if you have ever called this terrible company that saves money by hiring over seas and cuts corners (apparently) you would notice they speak very bad english and understand less (likely, to pretend to understand less, also likely hired so as to act confused so the customer gives up, proof later...) I hate talking this "smack" and feel stupid for it, but honestly its true and I cant help but be upset by this and Im the most mellow punching bag person you could know. Anyways... So Im trying to explain and trying to think how to explain that 3 months ago a deposit was on my account. While they are on their computer trying to see this deposit hold that has dropped and is no longer there and no sign of it... So they ask the typical questions like when did i deposit the money and blah blah blah... But its very hard to explain everything that has happened, so i tell them look. If you just add all of money and from transactions you would see it adds to exactly the amount missing. Funny enough I had done this with their online transaction history, it matched perfectly with my own and showed hundreds missing even though online it says im negative 11.90.(fees). So they get very confused and say they cant see any deposit from said rental company and they ask to put me on hold... after an hour the phone disconnects... I call again to get a new person and start the process over, after much time I am put on another hold. 4 hours later I hang up and give up on this whole thing.
Regardless they lost a good customer that constantly recommended and told people to buy, and now working at retail stores I spread my story and warn others. I have another company that I love, They offer many great features and awesome surprises, even randomly gave me a better membership and cut my fees. So forget greendot. This happened early 2011, and I have checked the account multiple times and still never received my money back. Thanks again for screwing me. If I can help one person with this post, Then maybe i can feel some retribution for my lost money. Also all aspects of products/ customer experience should be kept within the country of use/purchase/care/etc.
Thank you for your time.
On May 11, 2012 i purchased a moneypak card from cvs. The next day the funds were unavailable. i called...
I received a check stating that I was awarded a 10, 000 cash grant and the 960.59 was to be used to get 500.00 dollars Green dot Money Pack and the test of the money was for me. I would receive the other 9, 040.00 dollars by over nite mail. Well guess what it never happened. What worries me is they have my social security number. Not to mention I had to take a loan out to cove the returned check. My wife and I are both disabled living on a fix income and we are raising or grand-daughter. The last thing we needed was a scam that put us into debit. I will be filing charges against all that is in this scam. Some one had better step up and make this right.

I approached Green Dot, because I wasn't sure that could pay my Property Tax. At the time I wasn't aware that without my permission, they transfer my Social Security Benefits from my bank to their. So the funds were transferred for Nov. & Dec. 2011.
Ms. Julie Hooper from the Bloomington MN Office knows the details, in fact she transferred them back to the right bank
I purchased a green dot card to pay a bill. I had one previously but was unable to find it, . When I purchased the card, it was not until after I got home did I notice the store did not charge me for fee for the card of $495. When I went to register the card on line they would not do so. They told me that I would receive a refund in 10 days. So I went the following day and made sure the 4.95 was charged and figured there should be no problem with registering a new card. When I went to register the second card I had the same response. I did ask for a refund of this card because I knew it would be a 10 day wait and I could not wait 10days for a second check of 140.
I phoned the company the next morning and asked them to issue me a card that I could access or transfer the payment of 140 to her account so I could use one of the two purchases that I made to pay a bill that was due. Well after and hour on the phone, one lie after another, first they were going to make sure I could access the funds., then he said they already sent one of the checks but would speed up the processing of them both and make sure I got the money asap. Well if they already processed the first refund how the heck can they " speed up the delivery of it. Another lie. Bottom Line don;t deal with these people, they sit on your money drawing interest and don't back up their promises. I still don't know why they would not issue the card to begin with
BAD BUSINESS AND BAD CUSTOMER RELATIONS. PERIOD.
Bought a VISA debit card (temporary) @CVS for $4.95. Put $160 on it. I went online to register it. Tried to order online. (Fineprint said could be done.) A Problem: was NOT REGISTERED!. I called their support 1-866 number. Registered there via "Mark". Tried to go online to access my acct: needed to login with username and password. BUT, NO WAY TO CREATE ON-SITE! Then received e-mail to go to "mygreendot.com" to establish username and password. Did that. Tried to access my acct online. Was told username and password DID NOT MATCH ANY ACCOUNTS!! i HAVE SPENT 2 HOURS OF MY TIME (AT WORK) WITH THIS BULL!! I AM EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED AND VERY ANGRY!! OH, I TRIED THEIR PHONE NUMBER SELECTION TO SEEK A REFUND- SENT TO REGISTER~~~!!!
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!!!
Hello we are going through the same thing right now. My boyfriend purchased a card from Rite Aid Yesterday February 21st 2012 At 8:50am in Syracuse NY for $310.00. He scratched off the back of the card and the numbers that are needed to use the card came off the card too and was scratched off as well. The Rite Aid store called Green Card to explain the card was a bad card and he needed a refund, and Green Dot Pk representative said they will get his refund in 4 hours. When he called Green card; 5 hours later they stated that their representative called and verified that Rite Aid had given my boyfriend an instant refund. We called rite aid with Green Dot and Rite Aid stated that was incorrect and was never said to anyone at Green Dot, that a representative from green dot called and said they would refund him that day. We have been on the phone for 2 days fighting for our money back and we have been on the phone with them for over 2 hours, as he told them he will not wait for another phone call to just to continue investigation. Now they are saying they have to continue the investigations because the Rite id manager did not provide enough information.
I ordered a green dot prepaid visa.. I loaded $300.00 and tried to shop online..and the store said the card was not authorized so, i assumed my card was not accepted, then to find out i was still charged for the items..long story short i never got order online and im still waiting around for green dot to refund me my cash.
I made the mistake of activating the card using the name of an acquaintance who skipped town. The day after I...
Using this card is a waste of time. it says its re-loadable but its not unless you provide the company with your social security num.

I received a moneypak from a friend and loaded it to my Mango prepaid card for $122. This is the 4th moneypak...
I have been attempting to add a 200 moneypak to my paypal account, ---but they say I have reached my limit and need to be approved to go over $250 per year SO then a screen comes up telling me to give my address, ssn, etc. So I fill this out. Actually I have tried doing it several times. When I hit "continue" I am presented with a screen saying "Validating Address Information..." And that screen just stays there - I waited two hours Saturday night - On Sunday I tried again and waited two more hours. On Monday I tried again for over an hour. And today, Tuesday, I have waited over an hour. And the screen just hangs there.
I've tried two different computers. No difference. I also tried having my friend put the $200 into his Paypal account - but the same thing happened to him. Greendot is not validating my address information and letting me put my Moneypak into paypal.
I telephoned Moneypak and spoke to customer support. The person told me the problem was with Paypal and gave me Paypal's number. So I called Paypal. Paypal assured me the problem was with Moneypak. So I called Moneypak again. Altogether I spoke with four representatives of each corporation and none of them could help me. On top of that, Moneypak's hours are 9 to 6 EST so for me, in Oregon, their office closes at 3PM. Pretty crummy for such a huge corporation.
I am a senior citizen. I live on a Social Security check of a thousand dollars that has to suffice to pay all my bills, rent, food, gas, everything. I purchased the $200 Moneypak because I needed to get computer parts on ebay. But now my $200 is in limbo. I purchased the Moneypak at Walmart - so I returned to Walmart and asked them to give me my money back. They can't do it. I am stuck.
I googled the problem and I see that other people have had the identical problem. One person at Moneypak's consumer services did tell me that other people are sometimes having the identical problem.
My friend who is a computer technician of twenty years standing tells me the whole thing seems like a scam to him.
Paypal can't help. Moneypak seems very disinterested. The Indian employees I spoke with were simply not helpful.
This is a bummer...
I'd really like to have these funds in my paypal account as soon as possible. I've contacted customer support at both GreenDot (moneypak) and PayPal. Greendot told me it was a paypal issue, paypal told me to "try later".
As the fraud officer in a small bank in Co. I recently saw a check and letter regarding this Greendot scam. Counterfeit checks are now being issued on KeyBank Service Corp. The name of the contact at Greendot is now Katherine Hennessey, an independent grant broker wth Greendot. (yeah, sure) One of our cusotmers got caught in this scam and lost $898.
Purchased a $300.00 reload June 4th, reloaded again June 7th for $500.00, to find out that they have blocked my card because ofor a pin dispute on the first reload. I have been calling and waiting for a call back sinse the 8th. Today is the 13th. They are holding every penny I have and not giving me any answers. I advise everybody to join together in calling the attorney generals office and/or the news rooms as well as anybody else who might be able to resolve these problems. Green dot is robbing ALL of us and getting away with it. I say we shut them down.
Hahahahaha strike one up for the good guys... Already read alot about walmart money card nightmares.. Going through one myself.. I'll spare you the details because my story is the same as all the other nightmares... Well did some investigating... Walmart prepaid money cards are issued through ge capital.. Who 3rd parties this out to a scam factory called green dot prepaid cards... So I look up the company website and then take the corporate address and search under the 626-739 exchange of numbers because they had given me a [protected] number to fax # in like 3 weeks ago.. So I get this [protected] number and call it thinking im going to get a person... Nope its a generic recording for people who get ripped off.. So I dial the same exchange but change the last to digits.. So [protected]... And blam I get derek in marketing and he dumbly gives me christina hunter (Legal departments) number the # I was talking to on the customer service line who was ignorant and just a #... So call derek @ [protected] and ask him for the extension of someone or you can call christina @ [protected] in the legal department and hassle her... Enjoy!!!
