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.

Wow.I am reading everyone's complaint and I am having the same problem.

I put money on my card to pay my rent because where I live you have to pay by a debit or credit card or a cashier's check. I was in a hurry and bought a card on my way to work. I tried to activate it quick. I was disconnected three or four times Finally when I got on the line with someone the signal wasn't clear.

Finally I got a person by the time I was in the back room at work trying to get ready so I can activate this card to pay my rent. I get a representative on the line and they give me some song and dance about a lock on the card. I need documentation. I was so upset They offered to send a refund paper check back to me in 5 to 7 business days.

Meanwhile my rent is late. etc. I have to then call and make other arrangements. I was running late for work at this point screaming like a maniac at my job.

It's my money and if they cant let me use it to pay my bill then what good is this card. I will never ever buy that card again. They better send this check quick. I had to sign papers and everything to fix my rent situation.

I could not even understand why.The person was not from this country and I still don't understand the reason.
