Recentlygot a Netspend card, loaded $215 and the first time that I went to use it it got denied. Called customer service and was told that it is standard procedure for them to receive a copy of my social security card even though it says that nowhere on their packaging. Unfortunately I've lost my social security card so I explained that to them ask them if I could provide any other type of documentation they told me no. After a much heated debate with their horrible customer service representative I was told that they would be mailing me my check back and I would receive it in 7 to 10 business days. I also didn't mention that I purchased that card to pay a traffic ticket and another bill that I had due on that same day, so now I had to call the police department get an extension for 30 days on my ticket and my other bills yet to be paid. Today I arrived home it is the 10th business day, run to my mailbox and guess what?? no check from NetSpend. I also forgot to mention that when I called them about it the other day to check on its status they had my condo number wrong even though I was the one who registered it and certainly registered it right. So in my mind I think because I caused such a stink with the customer service representative he purposely left a number out of my condo number so that I wouldn't receive the check, because come to find out when it gets sent back there's another 15 day waiting period Before they can mail you another check, that also takes 7 to 10 days to arrive. I'm going to call them tomorrow and raise hell I want my money back I'm not having it tied up for over a month because they're stupid and cannot do their jobs right. If you are planning on purchasing a NetSpend card do yourself a favor and buy a Visa gift card instead! Horrible experience!
