A scam yes I agree its a scam; I only got the card for use on PayPal to pay my eBay auction winnings. I have made over 100 purchases in the last few weeks an than my purchases started getting declined and I was shocked when I logged into the account to check the balance because I knew feul well I had enough funds to cover the small purchases only to find that I had a balance of only $0.34 so I took a real close look at the transaction history and realized I had racked up nearly $300 in hidden fees. Every purchase I made through PayPal was charged a $2.50 service fee.

I called them to learn that they charge this fee when ever you use an online payment gateway like PayPal and the fees are non-refundable. Something GreenDot never did and I thnk Im going back to them after getting ripped off. I only changed cards becasue I was tired of paying hte monthly service fee to GreenDot and Achieve only charges a $25 a year fee.

I utilize pre-paid cards on PayPal to isolate my real bank accounts from some of the would be theives and conartists that operate on eBay and PayPal after a bad experiance years ago where someone had encoded a false check out page in their eBay listing and nearly cleaned me out in a few short days after using the Buy It Now option and checking out witht he fake button that was encoded in to their ad.

I lost my card and need to report it, can't contact anyone nor cancel on line I'm done with this company. If the card is stolen they are allowing whoever stole it to do what they want for the day with my card

I don't understand how a company can send unsolicited cards. This should be illegal. I am not sure how they get our information, but it is completely wrong and should be punished. This company has no right to use our information to create accounts that we have not requested. Why hasn't this been stopped after so many years of complains? Who do they think they are? completely wrong. I received this card today and decided to look it up, I won't even think about using it after all bad comments. And no, the communication I received DOES NOT disclose the 9.95 activation fee and the 9.95 monthly fee, it actually claims to be free. I noticed that in order to speak with someone I needed to give the card number, which can also be a trap to activate the card. I haven't activated it yet. Does anyone know if we are ok if we don't activate it? I am even afraid of calling to cancel the card since they will ask for more information and can later use it.

I've been a customer of Achieve Card for many months. My direct deposits are on timely and accurate without fail. I've never had a fee other then my monthly fee of $9.95. Activation fee was waived . The online services are great and detailed, again, no complaint. I can view any statement at any time, posted and pending. The points system for bidding on auction items is simple to navigate and fun. all in all, I'm totally happy with them.

I also received one by mail . I went to get a green dot card and then called the 1-800 number to activate it . They took my $35 my green dot card had and told me a had a balance of $25. Then they told me they couldnt activate it until I sent in a copy of my I.d and social security. I was so upset I told them I wanted my money back . They gave me a hard time but eventually told me I would recieve a check minus $4 for shipping

This company solicited a debit card with a fee. I thought I was signing up for a prepaid card and activated it online. There is now a minus of 30.00 worth of (THEIR) charges just to have the card and - not a phone number or contact information in site so that I can ask them to cancel the card.
