Complaint Review: US Bank Reliacard -
US Bank Reliacard Freeze on unemployment funds
eI’ve been locked out of my unemployment funds that are paid through US Bank Reliacard. A month ago, they said there was fraudulent activity on my card. So, they issued me a new card.
The 1st problem, in a very long list, is two of the cards would not activate so I had to wait for a third card. It usually takes 5-7 business days for the card to arrive.
September 17th the 3rd card arrived and I activated it. It was active for one day, and then declined at the grocery store. After a week of numerous phone calls and waiting on hold for 4-5 hours at a time, I was told there had been a freeze put on my card because they were auditing my account.
I was told I needed to fax in a copy of my drivers’ license, rental agreement, and SSN card, and it would take 3 days. I faxed these documents on the 28th of September, and called 3 days later.
The first customer service rep I spoke with said it could take up to 120 days for them to do the audit. I insisted on speaking to a manager and was hung up on. I called back and was told they could not find my documents and that I just needed to keep checking back.
On October 7th I would not accept their response of call back, and I demanded something be done.They asked me if when I faxed my documents, I increased the photocopy size on drivers license by 200%, because if I hadn’t my fax papers were tossed.
So, on Friday 10/09/20, I went back to the UPS store to fax the documents with the NEW instructions only to have the UPS store try 12 times to fax my documents and the fax would not go through.
UPS said the machine is responding like its off the hook or unplugged on Reliacards end.
I came home called Reliacard and was literally told “hmmm, that doesn’t sound right, but maybe try back on Monday".
As of today, 10/10/2020 I have not been able to send the fax with my documents. That means my account is sitting there locked and I have no way to correct this.
I feel like Im on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and US Bank could care less. I have almost $3000 on my card that I cannot access because EVERYTIME I get the run around and new hoops to jump through.
My utilities and rent are late, and there are late fees adding up. The burden upon me is great as I am raising my grandchildren. I have NO groceries, or gas in my car to get them to school. We set out walking an hour before school starts as it is over a mile away. I had to borrow money from a neighbor just to send the fax.
I am desperate for someone to guide me on how to resolve this and be granted access to the unemployment I am entitled too.
