my moneypak account info is repeatedly rejected or unacknowledged by moneypak company over internet & phone, denying me access to funds i've entrusted to them.
Having money, fifty dollars left on my Green Dot card, I tried to purchase gasoline at four different gas stations all four rejected my card, Green Dot Card has charged me one dollar each for these rejections, for a total of four dollars, now I am afraid to insert my Green Dot card for fear of it not only being rejected, but a one dollar charge just for trying to buy gasoline,
Also another $11.86 disappeared from from the account, with no explanation, and Green Dot Card customer support, would not help, or explain.People Use Green Dot at your own RISK! ! !
I have put 50 on my card and they put my money on the wrong card and after I called them to fix it they only credited me back 20 dollars and they also take money out of your card almost every day for their "monthly" charge. They should tell you it's a daily charge! Green dot has screwed us over and all they do is take your money!
on july, 3 2010 the day of my birth day i went into cvs pharmacy to purchase a money order and load 500.00 in a green dot card. when i got to the counter asked the clerk for a money order. i payed him . he handed me the money order. i took it. i reached to give him the green dot card and money together, while i was telling him the amount. someone standing behind the line grabed the money out my hand and ran. after filling out a police report. cvs tape. four witness. the police still have'nt caught the four guys involved or given me any more information. cvs risk management told me the whole incident was my fault for paying with cash . they only accept cash at cvs ! they say i layed the money all over the counter making it easy and that i was'nt doing a tranaction with the casheir. if any one had something like this done to them please comment about it i do'nt carry that amount of cash on me, but i needed it to get a prepaid card. cvs have only one person in the front and no sercurity. so you are at your own risk when you enter the stores. cvs only cares about cvs.
I recently signed up for direct deposit for my Veterans Administration check so that I did not have to get out and do so much walking to cash my check etc...The VA did not put the last 3 digits of my account number on the direct deposit so Green dot kicked the wire back. I contacted them before the 2nd deposit went in and explained to them what had happened and that my social security number was on the check and that they could verify that against my account since that is the way they verify my identity over the phone and they refused said that they could not do that. My sister has worked for a bank for over 25 years anytime a direct deposit is rejected it kicks out a sheet telling them that something was wrong with the account so I know that they can verify the information by using my social especially when the account number is only missing 3 digits I explained this to the first person I spoke with and of course she either didn't understand what I was saying or just didn't care but I asked to speak to a supervisor I assume they thought I was going to hang up because they left me on hold for twenty minutes when she came back on the line and said her supervior was on a call with another person but she had spoken to her and she agreed there was nothing they could do. I again told her I wanted to speak to someone in charge and after another 15 minutes of waiting I finally got a Rommel on the phone probably some pee on who said the same exact thing that she had just said, I said to him so what you are telling me is that you are refusing to assist a Disabled American Veteran to ensure that my money is put on my card when I am telling you that it is coming in and exactly how much it is going to be for and hes exact words were I'm sorry there is nothing I can do...These companies need to hire more Americans and less of those people who do not understand English where is the compassion I also told him that this was going to put me in a serious bind since it takes at least 3 weeks for the VA to return the funds but he did not care...So for anyone thinking of using these people just know they are not compassionate at all and will not assist you in any way...So as soon as this is over I will be removing my money and they can take the card and shove it where the sun don't shine...
On july 7, 2010 I attempted to purchase three (3) green dot moneypak cards. I was refused and told that the store was not allowed to sell more than one (1). Having done this type of purchase in other walgreens stores I wonder why I was turned away. I understand that when the green dot card is loaded (Store or internet) that walgreens will not allow more than one load for $500 per 24 hours. I do not understand why walgreens treats customers in this manner as to not sell the moneypak. Who is to say how meany accounts the moneypak will be applied too.
Green Dot.com Debit Card knows there is a fraudulent billing as the merchant told them and refuses to crredit account
Okay- so I received a "GreenDot" Visa card as a gift from my brother for my birthday- it was only for thirty dollars- but hey! It was 30.00. I registered as instructed- then went to use it and it says it is invalid- so I waited a few days thinking it would register by then- tried several more times to use it- and it said invalide4 every time! I called the company- and went to three different people before the last person told me I was out of luck...and 30.00 because I didn't have the original cardboard card that was orignially sent to me- I am so mad! This is mickey mouse and a crummy way to run a business. I will never even consider using this company for ANYTHING ever again and will tell all my friends, too! No resolution-just out 30.00!
Someone used Moneybookers EUR London company to attempt to make an illegal transaction on my Greendot prepaid Visa credit card in the amount of $848.62 on 05/29/2010. Fortunately, I never put much money on my card because I do not have that kind of money to throw away let alone let someone steal. I would suggest you investigate who is using Moneybookers EUR London as a way to steal money from people's credit cards. I have informed the FBI of this transaction and there may be an investigation pending on the attempted theft.

Ordered my tax refund on a Green Dot Card, and never received it. The dollar amount was $1400+
This company straight up stole my money.
I've called several times, the first 2 times I called i was assured that the card was on it's way. 20 Days later I called again. This time they promised to fedex it to me for a fee of $20 after arguing in hindi with the agent on the phone, i was able to get them to ship it for free. 3 day delivery time frame.
6 days later I call and they still haven't even shipped the card.
This is just a crappy company with a website and a private label prepaid card that cant even figure out how to use the mail.
IRS, FTC, and BBB complaints are next, for both turbotax and green dot.
Horrible company, don't use them... BTW keep searching, there are thousands of complaints.
greendot wont give me back my money i put on my card. i am going to sue them!! because i am not the only person complaining about this matter. so far they made me wait 10 days to just tell me that they will not refund my money on an certain day. and im still waiting .. ive done everything they told me to do, in order to get my money. they gave me the run around and lieing to me in result of me getting my money back.
they are holding $20 that belongs to me.. it might be a small amount of money but its my money. so therefore, i am sueing them for all the mess they have put me through. and advise to everyone. STAY AWAY FROM GREENDOT.COM ITS FULL OF LIES AND THEY OVER CHARGE PEOPLE.AND THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY!! BOYCOTT GREENDOT.COM...
I was over charged by google and had stoped my campain with them. they elected to continue my campain and...
i have a green dot premier mastercard account that expired on [protected], the premier account states that a new card will be issued when the old card expires. i have not recieved the new card and since it is the first of the month, i wanted to pay my rent. i had a direct deposit that was sent to my card on [protected] but it was not listed as funds added. i had thought that i was to automatically get the new card due to the perks of the premier card that i had. the customer service agent told me that a new card was not sent but they will send one now which i will receive in the next 7 to 10 business days thus i would not be able to access my money until then. her supervisor then came on and said that my premier membership was revoked because i had a negative balance when the deducted the monthly fee. the premeir card has a perk that says it does not count against you when you gain a negative balance for their fees. he stated that i would have to reapply for a card thus spending more money on a card when they sell a perk to avoid that. i told him that i'm very dissatisfied with this. told him that i will contact the nebraska attorney general and file a complaint as well as the better business bureau and everyone else that help in this issue.
i originally got this card to avoid the notorius fees that usbank and wells fargo have on their checking accounts as well as savings accounts. seems to me that anyone with a bank account or a debit card is fair game for these fees. green dot offered me 10.00 monthly that was reduced by 5.00 should i direct deposit 750.00 a month. atm withdrawal fees of 1.95, these were better fees than the banks. i should have known better, somethings do not last long.
Got this temporary debit card for $35 as a gift. Tried to activate it to no avail through both the website and by phone.
After 3 days of the nonsense of phone calls to machines who apparently cannot understand the word J.A.M.E.S. or any other voice command in English. (Sorry, don't speak any other languages) have given up trying. What a major SCAM this is, why they have not been investigated by the authorities I do not know.
I received a check for over $900.00 on a grant with instructions to cash or deposit said check and then return to Mary Edwards a fee of $400.00 for finding the grant. Being as 1. I have been applying for grants, and 2. in need of money as work is slow for my husband ( we are self employed). I seriously considered cashing the check, UNTIL i decided to go online and research this, even though i had been applying for grants to continue school this just didn't seem right. I am so glad that i did not cash this check as i would have been furious with them and myself.
You know we have the government butting into bail out the banks, and auto dealers but "WHERE THE HELL ARE THE PPL THAT ARE BAILING US OUT????" that can actually take advantage of unsuspecting ppl that are hurting for money out there. And these ppl do continue to catch the one or two ppl that either don't have internet to research these things and that are that desperate and they cash and return the money... I will be taking my letter with the bogus check to my local authorities and then to the postmaster general... and hopefully these idiots MARY EDWARDS and LINDA SPALLDING get caught...
Bad check / 10, 000.00 cash grant
"official check" from key services corp with a faded key icon and signature for the amount of 965. 99. instructions were to cash or deposit this check and send 4% to "mary edwards" for commission fee through a greendot moneypak.
I purchased one greendot debit card from Walgreens.
The cost was $4.95 and I also deposited $30 into the account.
I made an on-line purchase of about $28 and everything went well.
I then deposited $20 more, but the next time I used it I was told that my card was registering empty. I made numerous call to greendot,
but was never able to talk to an actual person.
I tried to check my account on-line, but could not get into the site.
Now $20 some dollars isn't much, but I don't want greendot to get away from ripping anyone esle off, although I'd like my money returned.
I set up an online bill pay through Greendot for $2000 to a private party. You can only send $1000 at a time...
i've been a customer of greendot since 2005 or 2006. throughout the years, i've had a history of...
Got a visa gift card and my wallet was stolen. When I called Greendot.com to stop the card they had no info on my card. I had to activate it with many questions on the phone. It was a $1oo gift card. I think they should have been able to stop it with all the info I gave them. I will never buy one of their cards again.
