Default greendot



i got a green dot moneypak card from walmart... so i could add money to my paypal account... well... i got it home... and entered the numbers on the receipt... and on the card... and both numbers were invalid... i tried so many times to add it... that it told me i had to wait 24 hours... before i could try again, so... i called greendot moneypak... and i spent 2 hours on the fucking phone with them... trying to get them to understand the situation, when you call... you get some asshole that don't speak fucking english... you have to repeat yourself 3 or 4 times... and when they finally catch on to what you're wanting to do... then they transfer you to yet another asshole who doesn't understand english... and there's no way to send these fuckers a email, well... i got was the bullshit run around... they told me it's my computer... and for me to call paypal... paypal tells me it was an issue with greendot moneypak, finally i get tired of the bullshit... and i take it up to walmart... they tell me there's no refunds on those cards... so i said the hell with this shit... and i went and got something to eat and went home, well... the next morning... i had another look at the receipt... i looked at the upc code for the greendot money card... and no where on the receipt... was that number... so... i called greendot moneypac... yet again... and i got a nice guy on the phone... which gave me a fax number to send a copy of the receipt and the greendot moneypak card to... and he gave me a cc number, he tells me it takes them 24 hours from the time they get the fax... to go through their systems... and find the damn transactions... then they either send you a new card... get you some numbers that work... or... refund your money... yeah... and in the meantime... if you're bidding on something... you're being screwed yet again... because you were counting on the god damn card to go through... so what ever you're bidding on... you get outbidded... just because the damn card... didn't go through. i lost 3 damn ipods thanks to these assholes... they didn't work... but i had plans on repairing them and selling them... but i can't do that now... because greendot moneypak screwed me. so... if you think greendot moneypak cards are all that... think again... because i will never... in my life... buy another one!!! well... it's now the day before christmas eve... and i called them this morning... and i was on hold for 38 freaking minutes... no one answered the phone and said, "we're busy right now... and it's going to be a while before we can get to you... do you mind holding just a little longer"... or anything else for that matter, they had some crapy ass music on there... and you know what... at 12:47 cst... it's going to be 48 freaking hours... and they have yet.... to resolve this shit with me, they told me it would be 24 hours... so... on top of this crap... they're liers too... so if you're thinking about getting one... don't waste your money... because i'll say this... you'll be right where i'm at right now!!!!!

I had this problem with green dot back in 2012. They kept giving me the run around and said they would give me a full refund which ended up taking about a week and a half. I did use them again after that and never had any problems with them again.

Default Problems With GreenDot



I've had problems with GreenDot in the past as well. The worst part is you have to pay $14.95 just to get the card in the first place, at least where I live anyway. It's supposed to be a pre-paid card but they let some charges go through that I didn't have funds for and they actually sent me a bill in the mail. I never paid it and I never saw anything on my credit report about it so I think these people are scamming people at times. There are a lot of other pre-paid cards you can get besides GreenDot, be careful with them!

I used one of these for a while but I heard horror stories about the moneypaks not being valid or somehow already used by someone before you even bought it.

So I would always load the card at the service desk, it cost 4.65 or so but I knew the balance was on the card before I left.

On any account I've ever had I had to jump through hoops to get the "overdraft" protection turned off. Even when I had it off on a credit union account I got caught still because they said I had only turned it off for the debit card not on the account itself.

So I asked them to do that too and they said they never had a form for that request, so the gal had to take a piece of paper out of the printer and have me hand write my request and sign and date it before they would turn off the overdraft.

I've never personally had this problem, but I have heard of such stories happening. This sucks that it happened to you, and quite sad also.

That sounds like such a nightmare! Thanks for the warning! I was about to buy one at Walmart, but now I know better. I am glad I can use my BillMeLater account I guess. It's still pretty awful.

Oh my goodness, that sounds like a terrible experience! I have never bought a greendot card, and I don't think that I want to! How frustrating!

I bought a greendot once. ONCE. Never again. Worst experience of my life. They are unnecessary about everything that doesn't matter and don't have what is necessary. Lousy and joke of a company.
