Holding and fraud.
Anonymous Cardholder

They hold your money thats supposed to be credited back to your account in 6 days from September 5 to October 18. I am a single mom with 4 kids and have lupus i don't have no money for them to hold. I tried western union on line and it did not go threw. But they kept it pending. I need that money for my medication. I had this card for over12 years. Not no more

Go to one of their competitors!

They bend you over with fees $$$  $9,95 per month and $1.50 charge just to check your balance at an atm.  Working for Uber I made my first deposit using their card...only a $43.00 deposit, I wanted to make sure it was working and discovered my balance $31.55...they had charged me $11.45 on my first deposit.  Eff that.  I closed my account and went to a more reasonalbe card.   Don't get screwed by these guys.  Tell everyone you know to get away.  

Their review on Nerd Walltet was four stars...that can't be true unless they paid extra for the rating.  Consumer Affairs has them rated at one start.  You've been warned.

My husband had this card and he lost it. Have been trying for almost two weeks to get another one, but they keep giving him the run around about needing proper identification. We sent in his driver license and his military I.D and they still said it was not enough to release another card. It has been almost two weeks.

They are a scam they are holding my while tax refund check and will not release these funds back to the federal government.. This business must be illegal, becuase I hear numerous bad reviews of innocent people getting ripped off or never seeing thier money or card again. Also they will hold your funds and will not give you a truthful answer about where the money is. This company ruined my entire life, and I have four kids to take care of and I am about to be on the street becuase of them. I think they need to be put out of business and I may have a major lawsuit on my side.

First off i myself didnt have a bad experience at all EXCEPT with the fees. I was charged almost $100 just with fees before even swiping the card for the first time. IF any of you have realized you're using this card and experience anything bad REMEMBER the card is associated with MoneyGram! Meaning you can go to any facility using MoneyGram and withdraw your funds before anything else gets worse. I DID! I went to WalMart in the Money Center and withdrew all funds before something got to me. Mininum withdrawl at WalMart is only $1000 with a $3 fee (good price) so dont feel discouraged about the card just withdraw your money asap.
