  • no access to funds!!!!

    I opened this account for one reason only; to get away from banks. i needed a simple prepaid account and i remembered this company sent me a card a while back which i tossed of course. So without reviewing the company, i just decided to open up an account. i did think the fees were a bit steep, but i just needed something temporary until i can find a more permanent place to put my money. So for now this place seemed okay. That's where i went wrong! So i signed up earlier in July 13' and was waiting for my card in the mail. it was around payday and i decided i need my routing and...

  • locked

    I called customer service to report the card they sent me had not arrived. all they had to do was cancelled the mailed card and send a new one. Instead the person locked my current card. The agent was out of the country. His english was garbled obviously east indian ocean location. I also reported that the website was not letting me into my account even after I followed new procedures and it was deleting one piece of information everytime I hit the continue button. More...

  • Fraud

    I am having a similiar issue with accountnow. I was supposed to recieve my refund two Weeks ago through my tax reparer. Come to find out that my funds were routed to a different account and routing number that belongs to account now. I didn't even know this bank existed until last week. Now they are saying that i have 36 dollars left on my tax return that did not go to me. So someone is spending my refund money. I think the best thing for everyone to do who has been ripped off because of account now is to go file a police report. Give them all of the banks information because this bank... More...

  • Account Now Restricting My Account and Giving The Run Around

    My name is Michael Daniels and I have an Account Now Visa card. I had our (my wife and I) tax refund direct deposited to my card and first of all the refund was late. We called Jackson Hewitt and they informed us that it was received by Account Now at 8:00 a.m. on February 26, 2013, but the funds didn't show up on the card until 6:00 a.m. on February 28, 2013. We went about the usual business of catching up on past due bills and much needed shopping for our household. On that same afternoon, my card was declined when I tried to make a purchase at the local Wal Mart. I immediately... More...

The other portion of my refund was received by my other bank on 1/26/13. I have tried calling several times, only to be placed on hold for 50 minutes then hung up on. I need to have this resolved asap because I am in need of my refund.How much longer do I have to wait? More...

    DO NOT USE THIS CO> EVER!!!!!!! I called a rep yesterday to ask about card. Because i did not have my card in my hand she closed my account.

Said i have to wait they cant moneygram it nothing. As a result my children and i will now be homeless. They tell me i must wait for new card to arrive in 5 to 7 days.

  • Account Now Card

    DO NOT i repeat Do not use this card as an option for any kind of direct deposit. I used it for my tax refund and boy I tell you they have caused me so much distress with my own money. Not only do they impose all the ridiculous fees but also tell you how much money you can access and where. I am truly disgusted. The customer service lady even told me a bold face lie when I confronted her about their terms and agreements which should have allowed me a higher advanced but she was dumfounded on purpose. Never again!!!! More...

  • pay check

    My c information was stolen and I was told by accountnow that I needed my original id and social security card before they issue me another one. I asked why and they because they needed it a year ago. Why would they wait til I get paid, have my stuff stolen then tell me when I report it when they should have done this a year ago? They are illegally holding my paycheck and if they don't send me another card or send my paycheck back to the company or mail a check to me then I am going to sue!!! More...

I am so very frustrated right now because I did get a txt yesterday saying my check would be available on 10-19-2012.......well its 10-19-2012 and guess what NO FUNDS are there. Do not waste your time with this card. Netspend is a much better service AND you get your check THE SAME DAY THEY RECEIVE FOR REAL. Account now claims to do that but its a load of s**t. Rush...

  • Great convenience horrible service

    My husband and I had been in a tight spot and being able to have a card to have his VA benefits deposited to was wonderful. But, within a month of having the card there were problems. Every time I would call the service technicians did all they could to avoid helping me while saying things like"I can understand your frustration" and "I wish there was something I could do." They also would pretend to call up the account's records but I know they did not because they would insist on speaking with my husband for permission to talk to me, when we opened the account...

  • unauthorized charge

    I had cancelled a trial with a company and they were not supposed to take money out of my account. Account now let the charge go through on a weekend when I had no access to any of my other accounts. When I called, first my husband had to give them permission to speak with me as it is in his name. They never made a record of this and after 5 calls he had given them permission 5 times. I was told that they could not reverse the charge although I had sent them my documentation. I would ask to speak to a supervisor they would put me on hold for 15 minutes then the phone would hang up. I... More...

  • Just lost a long time customer

    Accountnow is rude and unprofessional. They act as if you are there only option. I have have them since 2006 off and on. Customer Service is the worst. You get a different answer every time you call. If there is a problem there is no branch to walk in to. They take way to long to resolve disputes. I had to order another card first the sent it to the wrong address. After I told the rep the new one. Then still tried to charge me for the card i never got $10. After I complained they told me they would credit it as a one time curtsey as if I was the one who messed up. Then mailed me another... More...

  • False Advertisement-Lying to Customers

I went online to see if/where these were in my area and there were about 7, I used the two closest to my home just recently and guess what.........I was charged!!! I called to get this cleared up, the rep replied that they do not pay ATM service fees so I read to her what the screen had said about how I would not be charged fees and even read the finr print to her. She insisted I was wrong and she didnt see that screen fromm her end. I then asked for a supervisor who said that I went to the wrong... More...

    Hello, my name is Bryan Coleman and I had my tax refund added on my Account now card. My refund came on 2/8/2012 and I went to the ATM and they said my card was restricted. So I called Account Now to see what the problem was and they said my birthdate didnt match. So I told them my whole name, SSN, and MY birthdate and they said everything matched but my birthdate. So they said fax us a copy of your I.D. and SSN and I have sent 30 copies in the past day and they keep saying they have not recieved them. I gave them the fax # they gave me to make sure it was right and they said yes. So my... More...

    Have you ever had to pay to put money into your account, well you will with AccountNow..When you draw money out of your account you will pay, then you will pay a monthly service fee. Try to close it. It won't happen. They tell you you cannot, especially if you have a 1 dollar balance. This is absolutely a ripoff deal. DO NOT get into it. I am writing them a letter and putting my cut up card in the letter as they do not get it. The people on the phone tell you you cannot close this account. More...

  • fraudulent account

    Someone opened an account and electronically filed a tax return for 2009 using my personal information with Account Now. The thief was able to close the account to zero balance and now I am trying to gather information and dispute to the IRS that the account was open without my authorization. I have been getting the run around having to send multiple affidavits and documentation resulting in the response from the IRS is that they deposited the money into the Account Now account under my name. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? I need help... Thank you in advance! More...

  • Account Now are thieves!

    Anyone want to file a class action suit? On June 28, 2010 there was a card to card transfer (debit) for $150. I have been out of the country and after getting my daily email with the account balance, I noticed it said, "$14.00. I immediately called from China only to be informed that they had no way to trace who took the money out of the account and that my account would be closed and they would keep the remaining $14. Not only did someone steal my money and they didn’t care, but they closed my account and kept the balance. I got transferred finally to the Dispute... More...

  • AccountNow SCAMMED me and my husband!

    On Jan. 29, 2010 both of our Federal returns were deposited into my my account. They closed the account telling me that I participated in an illegal deposit! They then told me that both of our refunds were sent back to the IRS. We contacted the IRS and they told us that they have NOT returned the deposits!!! I am VERY fed-up with AccountNow. I will never do business with them again. It's been over 2 weeks now and guess what - ACCOUNTNOW is making a million dollars + just on the INTEREST alone sitting in THEIR account. More...

Account now has frozen? Card or of the blue saying I need to provide proof of identity. No problem. I send in a copy of my id, social security card, and 1040 and they still have not released my money. After sending in my documents more than 6 times I don't know what else to do.

screwaccountnow1908 says: (2 years ago)
I have faxed in the copy of my state id and it has been more than three days i know they have it and my account still is blocked. Accountnow better get ready because i am going to sue them for mental anguish due to my account being blocked for NO REASON at all.
