Ok. So I call the number and they try to convince me that the teller pushed the wrong button at the store...Walmart. Then they try to tell me that the store doesn't accept AMEX. I said...it's Walmart! they sell your cards so im sure they accept them. They then said well your email address and the soc sec card probably dont match so you need to set up an email account with the same name as the soc sec card. Ok...I check...they match...now what? "Why is it so important to have the soc sec number...if you are not going to do a credit check?" as it states on their packaging (LIARS). "No Credit Inquiry". So I ask for my money back, they place me on hold for 1 hour!!!! I call back and ask for a manager, on hold again for 30 min. i hung up becuz im tired of their crap. AMEX is ripping off people who already are struggling financially. Wow what a lack of business ethics. Definitely less then integral. I never applied for an AMEX card because of horror stories I heard from friends...now I definitely won't ever. They set this card up to rip off desperate people. They claim it has no hidden fees, but as i read the small print...'locked' inside their little case...there are 'ton's' of fees. You don't find this out until AFTER you have purchased the card...what a trap....I WANT MY $75 bucks BACK! if someone is filing a civil suit against these money junkies I will be glad to sign on. I will keep trying but of course walmart wont give me a refund because I opened the box...this card is a financial trap! DON'T DO IT...and you cant use it as a GIFT card!!! LIARS!!!
