I bought a $50 prepaid "gift" card to give as a birthday gift.Well, the person I gave it to tried to use it and it was declined.
So, she gave the card back to me and I was going to return it to the retailer where I purchased it. The first thing they asked for was the receipt, which I didn't have. So, I called the toll free number on the netSpend card. Which was useless.
They wanted me to sign up for an account and give them person info - including my SS#. NO WAY! So, at the end of it all, I'm out $50. I just wanted to buy a gift card as a present.
I chose netSpend, because the last time I bought a prepaid card, it was a Vanilla, and I had problems with it also.
They, however, did correct the issue and give me my money.netSpend customer service is located in Pakistan or India, and they are useless.
