I was scammed by Netspend! I've had a account there for several years, and add money regularly through Paypal. I hardly ever used it for purchases, because of the fees, but I saved it for times when I wasn't sure if a particular offer was on the level, to save my main checking account from fraud. A couple months ago, I tried to log in to check my balance, and I got a message saying that there was a problem with my account, and to call the customer service number. So I did, and they told me that I was no longer eligible for an account! They said they would send me a refund check by mail. I don't remember the exact total I had in my account, but I know it was at least $99. (I'm not sure if that was before or after the last Paypal deposit I made, so it may have been more). Anyway, they only gave me a check for $54! That means they stole almost half of my balance! I'm definitely going to report them to the BBB, because that is blatant fraud, but I know that money is lost forever. What scam artists!
