Someone in South Africa registered a credit card in my name with my email address. I rang Payoneer to shut down the account and cancel the credit card request. I told them it wasn't me and someone is using my identity. They asked me for all the secure pass codes etc and I was furious. How on earth am I supposed to know the answer to those questions when I never set up the account!! They told me it would take quite some time to sort it out which infuriated me even more. The lady who I first dealt with said she'd put me through to the security/IT department then hang up on me. The second time I rang back, the guy couldn't hear me (sure!!) and he hung up. 3rd time I got some guy who was less than helpful. He asked me so many questions I was obviously unable to answer because I didn't set up the account then suggested I could be scamming them!!! I am going to contact the police if I haven't heard back tomorrow. These guys are unprofessional and sounds like after searching the internet tonight that I'm not the only one who has been wronged by this company. See their email to me's written as if I have set up the account!!! So in order for me to shut this down, I have to divulge all my personal highly confidential information to Payoneer! Do you think this is right? I don't!!!
I feel violated by Payoneer!!!
