gift2go issued unuseable replacement Visa gift card for one purchased at Walgrens that was fraudulenty emptied before use by receipient Fort Lauderdale, Florida
After never hearing back on the disputed claim, a call on 8/4/2010 resulted in them sending me a replacement Visa Gift Card for $95 ($5 fee deducted from original $100) in a few days. I activated the card by phone as instructed, and the online www.gift2go.net web site shows a $95 balance.
No merchants will accept the card, "transaction denied". When attempting to contact gift2go at their 866-643-0027 number, I now get a message to call a foreign number 10-15-15-8000 or use an on-line service calling10.com, with warnings that a nearly $5 fee will be charged. It appears that gift2go is shielding themselves from customers that they have scammed out of the money spent to purchase the Visa gift cards.
I have an unusable card and am out the original $100 plus the service charge charged for the card originally at Walgrens, and no reasonable way to contact the scamming company.
What a rip-off!
