Netspend - All-Access Visa Gift Card Complaint - Unethical Business Practices
I recently recovered a $100 gift card that I misplaced which had expired--the card had never been used or the package opened. I called the company to see about a refund or to turn the card back on and they said it was expired and they had deducted $5.00 a month from date of activation until there were no funds left!! What that means is if you get a gift card and don't use right away (they take $5.95 out of the card as soon as it is purchased), they deduct a fee monthly ($4.95)until all funds are gone. This is unethical as they are not sending out monthly statements or anything else that would cost $4.95 a month to administer. THEIR GIFT CARDS ARE NEITHER GIFTS YOU SHOULD GIVE TO SOMEONE OR SUPPORT THEIR UNETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!
