Netspend is a FRAUD RIP OFF company. I received a gift card for Christmas, they asked for SSN, home address, DOB, and, I am NOT KIDDING, asked me for Bank Statements, Copy of SSN Card, a utility bill, and PASSPORT!?
SERIOUSLY? To activate a $25 gift card they want bank statements, passport, DL, SS Card and utility bills? THIS IS FRAUD WAITING TO HAPPEN!? They DO NOT NEED your SSN to activate a $25 gift card.
They are CLEARLY SCAMMING people who refuse to produce this documents, and thus they only have to activate 1 of every 100 cards. REPORT TO GOVT/FBI/LOCAL PROSECUTOR. Anyone! AND>>>no merchant should stock this fraud card.
ASK FORE $$ back. Any merchant that stocks this card is cooperating with FRAUD.
Product or Service Mentioned: Netspend Prepaid Card Activation.
Reason of review: Order processing issue.
