Wal-Mart - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
Parents beware

This is a Complaint / Review about Wal-Mart.

Parents beware!
Wal-Mart money card scam I did buy the card as a birthday gift for my 13 year old son.
It comes with a temporary card a that says it can be personalized and reloaded after activation.
When we tried to activate it on line it could not be finished and I had to call the call center. I was told it could not be activated because my son was not 18. Nothing on the packaging says the person has to be 18 to use it (it is a prepaid card). They told me they could activate the temporary card but it could not be reloaded, The package says Use it now! Your single-loaded temporary money card visa card is inside! activate to receive your personalized reloadable visa card. The person I spoke with at the call center said I could purchases a second card in my name and have an additional card in his name. I dont need a prepaid visa and I am not going to pay an additional 8.94 for a second card. So what I originally paid 48.94 for was not what was advertised. Wal-Mart money card advertises a prepaid reloadable personalized card. No where on packaging does it say you must be 18 to activate and use the rechargeable personalized card. Paying 8.95 for the card is enough b.s. but then to be told it will not be personalized or rechargeable is crap.

This is a scam all parents need to know about. I demanded a refund of the 8.94 purchase price for the card and the $40.00 I put on the card. The foreigner I was speaking to said it would be in the mail with in 7 days. We will see.
Parents beware this is not a use anywhere gift card for your kids it is a rip off they try to get you to by more cards in order to be able to use the one the way it is advertised.
Do not buy this card.
