Working with this company has been a disaster. If you can stay away from this company and go with another Pre-paid debit card, do so. My daughter got a Green dot card to purchase a cell phone. She loaded the card with $500, activated it and made the purchase. She received word that her order had been canceled do to a mix up and the company was going to "release" the funds back to her card. We were told this could take about 5 to 7 working days. We waited for the refund and on the 10th day there was no activity on her card. She had not received the refund. We called Green Dot and asked about what was going on and where was the refund. We were told they would do some investigating and call us back. We waited and never received a phone call. We called back and still no refund. Green Dot stated they never received information from the company that they returned or released the funds. We then turned around and call the company that she made the purchase with and they gave us information on when the funds were released and that if we needed any more help to let them know. We called Green dot and gave them the information that we received, they continued to state that they never received the release of funds and would continue to investigate and call us. Time had passed and we never heard from them and my daughter would check her card from time to time to see if the funds where there. They never were. We began the calls once again and were told that the release of funds had been lost and would be credited to her card, but to avoid fraud Green Dot was going to cancel her old card and issue a new one, but in the mean time to file a dispute to get the money back. We did as instructed and waited the 7 to 10 days for a dispute resolution. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Customer service provides no service July 31, 2013
This review is not about the app but about the company. My young 13-year-old daughter went to New York City with her school group. It was suggested that they all have prepaid debit cards. I got one from green dot. After a few days, her card was denied. She called customer service and they were no help. She was stuck in New York City without any money. I got involved and finally straightened it out after being put through the ringer. They said that they would release her card but she could never reload it because of security reasons. OMG, she is a young kid on a school trip to NY. She is not a terrorist or money launderer. They would never tell me what the problem was so that she could prevent it in the future. I just hope all goes well the rest of her trip.

1.0 out of 5 stars Proof of How Greendot Operates December 14, 2013
I will just give you the facts. Greendot holds onto your pay before releasing it to your account. I had greendot for 3 years. I never got my military pay after midnight or early like traditional banks. This year, it was even later, up to 4 days after the pay date. I called and complained but no explanation. Then I did this-I ordered my financial history from them. It shows dates, times, down to the second, when they received my military pay and when they released it to me. Every single time I got paid with Greendot, they held my pay for 1 to 4 days AFTER I was paid. Why? Two reasons: one, if you are near the 30 day mark, they will hold it so that they can generate that fee for not having a direct deposit in 30 days. Two, because you know when you should be paid so they expect you to go out and attempt to use your card. They will allow it because they know your money is sitting there, but they won't post it so that they can get their version of an overdraft fee. This past October, I went to Wells Fargo. You can get a Value Checking Wells Fargo account regardless of credit or financial history. Oh, and the best part, if you have a deposit that's coming in on Friday, Wells Fargo doesn't wait until Monday to credit your account. They credit it on Saturday! Try getting that with GreenDot.

1.0 out of 5 stars I am appalled by this newest bankster app. December 31, 2013
My daughter sent me a 50.00 debit card via I tried three times to activate it on the website with the minimal information asked for. All failed. So did web access to help. I then tried the phone number to activate it. No success there either.

Went to the customer support phone line. Turns out to activate it, I had to divulge information including my SS number, address, phone number and birth date. I then noticed the monthly reload charges and tomorrow she might have had to pay another 5.00 to reload it. I decided to use it, kill it off and now needed to go on the phone again and see if I can cancel the personal card that they may have generated for me in the activation process. Ten minutes of waiting!!!! I finally get someone, with an echo voice in the background. Begin to explain the problem and another person comes on the line asking how to help. Now two people are talking to me. I ask the latter person to log off. Instead the first person (female) disconnects and so does he. Nice to know that for a 50.00 present I have now supplied a Philippine answer site with so much personal information. They will probably sell my phone number and my address to spam sites and make even more money for this company.

Never trust this company unless you want monthly fees. Money Orders, Postal, Pay-pall, Home Depot gift cards are far safer. Now I have this company having all my personal information in a call center in the Philippines.

I will be contacting the State Attorney General and the State Banking system about this latest fraud by banksters. 50.00 with a 5.00 purchase fee (nice profit already) 5.95 re-loading fees per month make it close to 12 per cent interest per month. 144 % interest in a year.
