Netspend Complaint - Netspend Is A Fraud!
WISCONSIN -- On 4/9/09 I arrived home to find a nice, new NetSpend Prepaid Visa in my mail. This would have been fine except for the fact that I did not apply for this card!
The letter enclosed said that a financial service provider and nationwide websites recommended me for this prepaid card. YEAH RIGHT!!!!!
I called their customer service line and got the runaround for about 20 minutes until I actually got a live person named "Joel" (who could barely speak English to boot) who then asked me for the card number for verification purposes & to close the account. Of course, I did not feel comfortable doing this, so I didn't. I advised her that I did not apply for this card, did not want the card, and was there an address that I could mail the card (cut up) back to the company. The representative then advised me that there was no such address & kept insisting that I give the card number.
I also plan on contacting the credit reporting agencies tomorrow and my Better Business Bureau.
