Netspend/ Metabank Ripped off by ATM, they won't refund me Austin Texas
On 12/14/2013 I withdrew $40 at an ATM at 1427 W 3rd St, Sioux City IA 51103. It only gave me $20, so I called the number on the front of the machine. They told me (Metabank, which ironicaly is the logo on my Netspend card, as well as the name of the bank my direct deposits go to), to call my own bank (Netspend) to dspute the charge. After weeks of fighting back and forth with Netspend, here I sit with a letter dated 12/31/2013 telling me that $43 has been credited to my account. (I don't want $43, I want $20 - the money I didn't get plus the ATM fee back, which I shouldn't have to pay to a machine that ripped me off).
Funny thing is, that money is NOT in my account. The ATM charge is still listed, and they have only refunded $2.50, which is the charge Netspend charges for using an ATM. As of 1/2/14, I have an email from them stating that it could take 3 months to get the provisional credit, yet this letter tells me I have it already. I do not. I am tired of the run-around. 3 months later how is the bank ever going to verify the checks and balances of their ATM to verify they are $20 heavy? I want my money and I want it now. The $23 that I am owed, not the $43. I have a letter ini my hands verifying it has been credited, yet no credit in my account.
Every time I call them, the people I speak to can't speak or understand simple English and it is beyond frustrating beccause they tell me something different every time.
