moneypak approved my refund but no check ever came

On 10/1/2018 I purchased (2) MoneyPak cards the pictures provided is the card I tried unsuccessfully loading to my bank debit card I filled out the form for the refund and the request was granted and 3 weeks later can neither call the customer service number provided or send an email which is REALLY inconvenient to the customers... if nothing is done within the next 2 weeks I'll be forced to take legal action against the company for theft of my funds

Best regards,

green dot moneypak

I purchase a greendot MoneyPak on August 27, 2018 from Walgreen. I tried to load the funds onto a prepaid card visa card. The transaction didn't go through. I tried calling to speak with someone but only was put though to a automated system that direct me to Green6dot.com and thus us what I did. After researching for a answer I can across a button that was for filling out a form for my refund and it will take two weeks to receive it, this was on August 28, 2018. Two weeks later no refund have arrived so I activated a greendot visa card with my name on it. The card has the number to call for questions. I called the number and spoke to customers service about my situation. I was told that my refund was mailed and I will receive it next week. I didn't receive it that next week. I call again was told the same thing only this time I was told if I don't receive my refund in the mail in two week call back and a tracking will be done. Two weeks later no refund, in September I called back and the tracking was submitted and was told it would take two weeks to be completed. October 19, 2018 I called back and spoke to another customers service person only to be told the same thing I was told first day I started out with my claim. I ask her to check the records for any note that should've been posted. She kept putting me on hold, just to come back wit the same information that she told me before. I gotten very upset about this and request to speak with the manager or supervisor in charge, she put me though to someone
I believe that worked in claims. This person knew what she was doing and held me in a professional manner. She told me I will have my refund in two weeks and also gave me her employee ID number. She said for sure I will get my refund. All this happen on October 19, 2018, today us October 22, 2018 I received my refund check in the mail. My question is why did it take so long for them to send me my refund????

prepaid visa card block

On or about 10/17/2018 card number [protected] was purchased for the sole purpose of having a return of a cap nail gun purchased at Stoneway placed on it. The original purchase receipt was used in returning the cap gun and a green dot customer service rep was spoken to about the transaction, saying it would be no problem bmand that funds would be available in up to 3 business days. On 10/21/ 2018 the account was checksd by the account holder and the card did and still holds an amount of 230.00. Upon trying to use the card the card was denied and on 10/22/2018 green dot was contacted to inquire about the situation. They state that the account has been blocked due to needing further verification by which they mean the original purchase receipt, to verify that a transaction did indeed take place. They are not asking for the return receipt and they have already verified the funds, withheld their fee and blocked the account. They are now saying that until they have received a copy of the original purchase receipt the account will remain blocked. Even so that is not where the issue lies seeing as stones at retained a copy of receipts also, the issue is that funds that have been received and verified to be real funds already where a fee has been removed will not be available for another 48 hours after they recieve their verification. When speaking with the same rep as was spoken to when the card was activated there were no solid answers as to why this policy is affecting this account when the original purchase was made not with a green dot card for one and for two the company who transfered funds to the account approved the refund with receipt and transfered verifiable funds into an account. The supervisor whom took on the call after several request, some could consider to be an excessive amount of request actually was no help as to why this policy could affect a valid transaction like this or how to remidy the problem before 48 hours. There are financial obligations that were awaiting those funds and though green dot has them they are witholding them causing undue fees and burdens. They were asked if they could undo the transaction to which they replied they had received the funds and those were verified to be from stoneway, but now i must prove stoneway ever recieved any funds to begin with and that the procedure must go as outlined and there was no way they could right the inconvoenece even when asked if theh could just unblock the account immediatly upon recieving verification. All i am asking for is access to my much needed funds. I find it wrong that they can accesz the funda but i can not

unauthorized payment

I tried to sell a couple things at an online auction site, dropping them off at Lee Real Estate and Auction. When they did not sell for the prices that we had expected we actually ended up buying them back ourselves. Upon the return of our items we realized that our large red wing crock had been damaged. It actually has three new cracks that were not there before I drop them off at the auction house. So the first thing I did was contact GreenDot and ask that the payment I made to the auction house be suspended. I was initially told that that would not be a problem; that the transactions would not be allowed to go through. I wish I would have got the name of the customer service agent that help me that day. Unfortunately the transaction did go through the auctioneers received their payment, and I'm left with a broken antique. The next customer service agent that I spoke with said that I needed to file a transaction dispute with a form that could be found on the website. After spending an hour at least searching the website for the form to download, I gave up, disgusted. I then called customer service once again and was told by the 3rd customer service agent for greendot that the printable version wasn't even available on the website. This did not set well after being told one lie and then another lie on top of it? I was told by yet another 'helpful' Green Dot customer service agent to put it in writing and send it in to the address provided. I then went back to the website to view my transaction history and found out that not only had reimbursed my account $79.20, that it actually took the reimbursement back out of my account on the very same day! So once again calling customer service I was told to submit my transaction dispute claim as soon as possible, which is what I'm about to do. Yesterday I went to check my account by calling a 1-800 number for GreenDot and after several attempts I was still receiving the message that my card number was invalid. This is the worst card I have ever been unfortunate enough to purchase. It would seem to me that the right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing at Green Dot customer service. They obviously are not well versed on the crucial elements needed to provide accurate information to their customers. Nor are they even genuinely concerned whether or not I get my money back. Someone should inform them that without customers like myself there would be no need for a customer service department.

my card was blocked when it was sent to me with my ssi money on it

I had miss placed my old card that I just has social security directly deposited to. I called green dot and you sent me a new one with the money on it, but it was blocked due to irregular activity on Tue card!? There hasn't been any activity on it except the deposit, because it is blocked. I've submitted pictures of my ID NUMEROUS time and also email it to corporate. I need my money, there's absolutely no reason for it to take so long to unblock the card.

my green dot debit card

On October 5th I called into inquire about $100 that was taking off from my card on October 4th that question they said they put a block on it that card number is [protected] I was told the card would be canceled and they will send me another one I received another one in the mail +[protected] when I tried to activate this card they said it was blocked then the recording says I have two cards on file the first one in question was the first one I mentioned which has a block on it and I assume no decision has been made as to where my hundred dollars went the second one is blocked because they said they need verification of ID I sent them verification of my ID several times as they requested and document upload I still have not been able to get my money's and most of all which is even worst you can't get through on these two numbers they tell you to keep dialing to speak with customer service you get lucky if you keep dialing to get to a prompt that tells you if you want to speak to customer service to press six this has been ongoing since October 5th it's interrupted interrupted me paying my bills I had to get donations to pay my rent and my bills are still overdue and you're holding my money this is driving me crazy especially since I can't talk to nobody about this I certainly recommend that anyone interested in applying for a debit card a prepaid debit card please if you want to hold on to your income don't mess with GreenDot I'm still waiting on my money now this is ridiculous it's been almost a month😥😣😤😢😭😡

having to wait on the 5% ironed on every purchase when I really need the money

I don't think it's fair that you have to wait on the 5% earnings when it's your money when you guys said it up to get back 5% on every purchase and we put our monies and on the card to spend it and if I need the money now I can't get it I got to wait 12 months that don't make any sense I understand waiting 12 months and builds up to a big lump sum but if you're in a jam and you need it and you should be able to get it

    Hello. I am Jackie Allen Cunningham and I purchased an Green Dot card thinking this company was trust worthy and backed up their customers. Ebay was the site I purchased from and my transactions was placed with the pre-paid debit card and the three that was authorized by me had the correct address but three was not pay pay caught the error in the addresses and would not accept the funds. I called pay pal and they explained that they did not have any type of affiliation with the transaction and i needed to contact my card holder. I am being told buy customer service agent Oneal id-75301 that i have to just wait and see who receives the funds and i cannot dispute. I know that is not accurate. Now green-dot is not escalating the matter as if my complaint is not worth escalating. I will not be able to proceed with my urgent matter due to the fact of Green Dot unprofessionalism. I am being put on hold by an agent and told he is contacting an supervisor. I been waiting now for may 25 minutes. I have been told that my money is in an unknown place and also said that its nothing can be done. My contact info is 251-362-2130 of [email protected] please contact asap and the call from Oneal is recorded and i will never Shop with green dot again ever and to the corporate i will seek legal advise.

    Green dot has allowed an unauthorized transaction to take place and will not stop the transaction after it has been detected. Green dot will not stand behind their advertisement of protection and monitoring their customers money. One star for them and no recommendations.

the lack of customer services to assist buyers of green dot moneypak

Let me begin without getting upset. My name is Juan Vergara. I want to open an E-bay store. I was " instructed" by PayPal You-tube videos that I would need to purchase a (MoneyPak) at certain stores. I whisked on over to the nearest Walgreens and purchased a Green Dot MoneyPak in the amount of $95.00 plus the Service fee of $5.95 extra. I went to the cashier paid by cash at the counter and the MoneyPak was "scanned?" I was given a store receipt. I tried, and tried, and tried fruitlessly to contact both The Green dot / MoneyPak representative via the number given : [protected]. To transfer the cash into my PayPal account or transfer my cash into my checking account??? Remember, I told you that I've watched You-tube PayPal videos and the other ebay Sellers gave instructions step by step to buy a MoneyPak and add cash into it at certain stores. The phone contact [protected] is automated without putting me thru an Operater (agent) which I need. It keeps saying "put your 16 digit " or your Social Security????? Over the phone. No way, Jose! I have no 16 digit number on the green MoneyPak???? Just to scratch off the back part which has 14 digits. My phone : [protected] or my e-mail me at [protected]@Yahoo.com to contact me. I want this resolved. I purchased the green dot MoneyPak at Walgreens on October 9, 2018 at 7:05 P.M. The Walgreens phone [protected]. I want someone to personally contact me because...I still have a $95.00 in a MoneyPak that I paid for in $5.95 service fee... And I got no service?????? To charge me a service fee! I need you to transfer my cash into either my PayPal account or my Checking Account. Juan.

walmart money card! total nightmare

This has been a complete nightmare. I had a transaction deducted from my account on 9/20/18. I filed a disputed as instructed and the represented told me it would take 10 business day to resolve the dispute. I called on the 11th business day and received another date of 45 days to resolve the issue. At that point I closed the account today I found out the company sent the money back I went to log into the prepaid account and there it was just sitting there since the 8th October. I call the customer service line and they stated the only way to receive my money is for them to send it by mail in a check form which will take another 10 days. At that point will be well over a month from the time I filed the dispute. Please please do yourself a favor a run AWAY from this company. They are not here to help or protect the costumer as a regular bank typically has dispute resolved in half the time frame then what walmartmoneycard lies to you about. There are many banks you can go through if you need a debit cardswith no credit, first time banking or bad credit . Wells Fargo Opportunity Checking is one of them. At this point I'm going the legal route in order for me to receive my money because I don't believe a word they say and all of there representatives are from overseas and it is hard to understand them and they really don't care about your issues. COMPLETE TOTAL NIGHTMARE!!!
