I've had a NetSpend prepaid debit card for approximately 3 years. Up until recently I've had no problem.

On June 5, 2017 my account was hacked and $1000 was transferred to someone I've never heard of. I filed a dispute and after 3 days NetSpend returned the money to my account but blocked so no one could transfer funds to my card nor could I transfer funds to anyone else. I'm on a fixed income and had that money direct deposited to my card. July 26, 2017 (yesterday) I found my account locked when trying to log in online.

I called customer service and was told my account (card) had been cancelled and the remaining money on my card would be sent in a check that I would receive in 7 to 10 business days. When I asked the reason for the cancellation I was told it was a decision made by business management due to my account being high risk. I received no notification of the cancellation of my account, no text, no email, no call, zip, nada, nothing. When I asked the representative why I was wasn't notified I was told that they needed me to call them.

If I had attempted to make a purchase yesterday I would have been declined and had to deal with the embarrassment of not knowing why. The least NetSpend could have done was notify me they were going to cancel my account and give me the opportunity to withdraw the funds I had left.

Now here I sit with no funds to pay my bills, buy groceries or survive until the check arrives in 7 to 10 business days. To say I'm not happy is an understatement.

Going through exact same thing have over 2000 in fraudulent charges on card with PIN number I don't have and before I even received card. Now it's been 12 days waiting for 1400.

And they said check came back to them and will issue a new one for 1100.

And card is closed but when text balance to 2622. Still shows 1100 in account and can't even access account online to view statements
