I'm extremely pissed. I filed my taxes through turbo tax, and chose the option of having my tax return deposited to my pre paid card from this company.

As soon as my card arrived in the mail, I attempted to activate it. For some "MYSTERIOUS" reason, my account locked up, blocking me from having access to my own money. I called customer service, and oh those reps are just pathetic and useless. They could barely speak clear English!

They said it happened for security reasons. I say what should I do? They instructed me to send in my documents i.e SS card, state I.D, W-2 form, to verify who I am and proof of residency. So I did exactly that.

I called back the next day, and they told me they didn't see my residential address on my w-2 form when it was clearly on their in like 5 different spots. And they wanted to see a date on it, but my w-2 form doesn't have a date located on it. So they told me to resend it, once again. Hopefully they won't give me the run around again next time I call up there.

JUST ACTIVATE MY *** ACCOUNT ALREADY!!!! My patience is running thin. I followed their instructions and now they're just making this flat out incredibly difficult for me. PISSED!

I won't recommend this company to anyone! As soon as I withdraw my tax return, I'm throwing away my card and filing a customer complaint. Never again Netspend!

We're over before we ever began. Good riddance.

My balance was at -$2 or so, thank God I took out all the money before my account locked, anyways it was still at about -$2 last time I checked and when I went to check to see if anything's change before I paid the negative amount it wouldn't let me log in. It's weird considering that I owed them around $2 and they locked my account so I can't do anything.

Yeah Nutpent sucks gravyjuice. Sand {{Redacted}} that aren't from the U.S.

they charge you 9.00 to have your check deposited, plus 2.00 for all and any ATM withdrawals, plus .50 for any and all statements via ATMs, if that doesn't seem to *** you off yet, they charge you 2.00 for debit card pin transactions at the register, and 1.00 for credit card transactions at the register!!!!!! Blow it Nuttspent

I had the same issue. Had bills to pay, and when I went to full my card, the lady looked at me and said that the authorization declined.

When I went to access my account information, it said that it was locked. I do believe that this is a scam, and I wouldn't recommend to ANYONE who plans on using it for more than a couple months

Why do you lock my account when I activate my card, this doesn’t makes no sense at all but I truly think this is a scam.
