Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I recently ordered a Ready Debit card because I was trying to avoid pricey bank fees. I was unaware that this company/debit card would charge so many fees. For the intital load/use, I ended up paying over $15.00 (9.95 for the activation and over $5 for loading and making one transaction under $60.00).  It costs $.95 for every transaction made without a PIN, but I was never assign a PIN for the card. The monthly fee is about $4.00 and I could go on and on. Some of the fees the company charge were not listed on the list I was aware of. I have tried to cancel this card and was charged $2.00 to speak with a live representative. When the line was turned over, there was an automated service claiming the office was closed at that time. I am very upset and I need help cancelling this account before I go into debt with all the fees.

Go find yourself a 12 year old and have him/her read the instructions/agreement that you received with your card.  That should do it.  Cretin.
