Green Dot Prepaid Credit Cards1148 Broadway, Columbus, Georgia United States of America
I write online for a living, and recently moved, so I closed my regular bank account and bought a Green Dot card to use with PayPal, which is how I get paid. I have used Green Dot before to transfer money from my online account to the card, so I didn't see what the problem would be; I never had a problem with it before! Sure enough, PayPal verified the account like a regular bank account, so I requested a payment be sent to the card. Nothing. Squat. Nada.
I call PayPal to see what happened, and they told me that Green Dot sent them a notifaction of account change. They changed my account number, and didn't even bother to notify me?! So, I try calling Green Dot's customer service number, and can't get through, because MY card number is no longer valid! My social security number doesn't work, either. Nothing works! I can't talk to a human being no matter what I try! These b*stards stole my entire paycheck! So now I'm probably going to lose the house I just bought, have my utilities turned off, and I've already been forced to go to a food bank just to feed my kids! I hope Green Dot is willing to pay for everything they've cost me, because I soooo want to sue them for this!
