Review: I am a customer of Direct Express and on there website it has options of notifications of deposits and low balance and I had the notifications go to my phone and now for the last 2 months the notifications have not been working I have called them several times to report they are not working. Each time they say they see that I have notification options set and I should be receiving them. I am not, they must think I just call to waist there time. They don't seem to believe that I am having this problem. They do not take my concerns at face value.Desired Settlement: 1) To have someone look into this problem.2) Develop a system to where someone who calls in with a problem that it can be sent to the proper departments to have the problem looked into.3) To follow up with the customer to insure that the problem has been resolve.If not they will lose my service and the money they make off my transactions. All my transactions are done with their card.Thank You

Revdex.com,

I am in receipt of a complaint submitted to your agency by [redacted]'s concern involves automatic notifications to his phone regarding his [redacted] card.

[redacted] stated in his complaint that he wants certain notifications to be added back on his phone. He had it setup where he was notified when he received deposits and when his balance was low. [redacted] stated for two months it has not been working.

On 04/23/14 [redacted] engaged their IT Department to resolve the issue. [redacted] spoke to [redacted] to confirm his carrier so he can receive his notifications. [redacted] gave him their contact information in the event he needs further assistance.

Please encourage [redacted] to contact [redacted] if he has further problems with the notification system. He may also contact me directly at the telephone number listed below.

Sincerely,

Response:

I have been a customer with Direct Express going on 4 years and in that 4 years I have had problems with the last year of service. I have contacted them a number of times for the same problem. Each time they close the ticket and each time I call in and have to start over. Part of that problem is that they expect you to put your life on hold and wait for up to a week to get back to you never give you an idea when they will call and even if you give them the times you are not available to call they will still call when you are not available. A supervisor has even put in the notes that I am disable and that it is hard to get to the phone and to instruct them to call back and they left a message that the will not call back They will only try to call you one time and if you are at a doctor’s appointment or have a nurse or and help aid who is giving me a bath they do not care they will only call one time. Now the federal Government has made them the only provider to get my social security benefits from them. Now they may say that I can go with someone else is not true, because it took me 6.5 years to get my social security and when I went in front of the admin judge she could not believe why it took me so long with all the denials except that social security never pulled any of my medical records and that they just kept denying me. But any how because of that I have a lot of medical bills that make it impossible for me to have a checking account or bank account or once my money would hit the account then anyone who I owe money to can take it. This is the only way I can get my benefits without any one taking it. Now back to the problem, I can’t get the alerts any more that the say I should get. I have did everything on my end that I can do I use to have straight talk wireless and T-Mobile and now I have Metro PCS and I still don't get the alerts. I tell them that I have ran across this problem in a different situation before and it had to do with my profile and no one believed me then until it was taken up to a supervisor and the profile was deleted and created again and it fixed the problem. Now I don't know if this has been done or not but with the way they dealt with my problem in the past I am sure they have not. I was promised before when I brought it to the Revdex.com that the person who responded to the Revdex.com inquire last year stated that they will work on this problem until it is fixed now with all my health problems and all the doctor’s appointment I have and all the hospitalizations I have had that I have lost the contact information of that person who responded to that inquire. But I was told that it would be solved. Well I am here to tell you it has not been. So that is why I am doing a new complaint. Also some of this is a ADA situation because with the Americans with Disabilities act that they are required by law to provide special arrangement for people with disabilities and to have them call more than one time is not a unreasonable request and that if I for some reason owed them money than they would keep calling until I paid or changed my number. Fix the problem, and make it to where I don't have to call in to create a new ticket. I to give me someone who will flow the problem from start to finish. TIP: WHEN YOU START AN ALERT SERVICE THEY SHOULD SEND OUT A TEST MESSAGE THAT THE CUSTOMER HAS TO RESPONT TO. Just like any other service. They make you enter your email address twice and you respond to that email and when you chose a text message option you respond to that text message. So the customer don't have to wait until an even happens like the deposit that happens once a month or a low balance. this is what you would have me do and the CSR would say that" ok everything looks right to call back if it don't work" and you would have to wait until next month before you call back and have to ask to speak to a supervisor before they would fill out a form to send it up to whoever it was that that problem would have to go to and still did not know it went there or not. The last time I spoke to someone they said they would send it to the program of the site and I have never heard anything back and it still does not work

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because:Revdex.com case #: [redacted]Revdex.com has been CC this.[redacted] I have tried and tried to contact you by phone at the phone nuber below and heard your voice mail. I stated that on the 4th of January 2015 that I was admitted to a hospital and they put me into a long term care at that point sometime during that time we talked because I was able to answer your call because I was not doing anything and I stated where I was at and even complained about the number of times I called to try to get someone to address this. But anyways you said that you made some changes and that we would have to see if it worked so then I was in the hospital until January 29, 2015 without access to my mail and email. But you had my phone number and never called and left a message even if I did not answer. In my complaint I stated that I was sick a lot and that I have nurse and other health care provider and aids to help take care of me. To keep me alive, to keep fighting. I have added some pictures to show the wounds I get on my feet that has caused me to get osteomyelitis. Maybe you might look that up and you would understand how serious this is and can be. The infections alone with out getting osteomyelitis is bad enough to take my life. I have in one of the pictures you will see I have already had a toe amputated and in another you will see how red and infected my leg was. Each time this happens It can take my foot, leg oand even my life. So maybe you can show a little compassion and understanding and not close the case so quickly. Also in this case and in many other cases dealing with Social Security customers we will have only 2 posable notification to get in a month. That is when we have a deposit of our SS payment and/or if we have the low balance alert and you know that. So for you to state that if you don't here from me by the 22nd of January just after talking to me on the phone knowing I was in the hospital and sent that letter out the on January 8 2015 knowing I will not get it and knowing that the only time I would get a notification from your system is on the 3RD of each month or if I get below the $50 low balance. Your company dose not allow us to get a text message or a email depending on the option we chose to know that the system is working at the time we make the choice. There is no way of knowing that we made a mistake until a month later it when we get are SS deposit and it dont work. I have kept my same number and changed to different phone providers and it still does not work. So it is with great certainly that it is not a problem with my cell phone companies. There should be on part of the process of elimination. I have stated for a long time that I believe the problem with my profile with your company's computer system. In my files which make up my profile that one of them that deals with the option to receive alerts have an unrecognize character or lack of or a coma separation fields in a data file. Somthing is not letting the system not send out the alerts to email, text or even the phone call alert. So to keep it simple, I am sure u have used the mail merg with Microsoft and the database where when you don't create the database or the variable right in the mail merg that your output is not right or letter. So please check all posable ways why this is not working and keep the case open until you get a answer that it is working. Don't close the case when you know I would not know if it is working or not until after the depot is made. There are months that I do not fall below the $50 low balance alert.Thank you[redacted]________________________________________On Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Direct Express1 <[redacted]> wrote:[redacted], I was requested to contact you regarding our Direct Express Debit MasterCard.

Review: Refuse to send me a new Direct Express Card with my correct name [redacted] when I send in paperwork of my last name as being [redacted]. They put my name [redacted] on the Direct Express card, that was NEVER my last name and I was NEVER MARRIED. Still will not send me the correct card after I send in verification papers via fax. They got the paperwork, what else do I need to prove to get the correct card? I shouldn't of had to prove nothing in first place because they are the ones who made the big mistake to give me the wrong last name on the card. I am just the payee for my daugther [redacted]. She has her dad last name and him and I were NEVER MARRIED! I have my maiden last name [redacted] since BIRTH!Desired Settlement: I would like a new replacement Direct Express card with my name [redacted] on it! Fix it and correct the problem or else I will take this to court.

Response:

Just letting your know that I put in an complaint last with against Direct Express, now everything is solved. So close the case and thank you.

Review: This company handles Social Security benefit payments for the individual I'm a payee for. Inside of two years I've two seperate times not being able to withdraw funds when made available, having my card declined, but still charged for the amount and paid out hours later and having funds at the ATM declined when they were there but still deducted from what was available in the account.

The first incident was back between May and July of this year, when everyone at the ATM was not able withdraw some or all of their money from their account on multiple tries. We kept getting error receipts saying, "Unable to Process"; Unable to Continue"; Financial Institution Unavailable".

I went to several different ATMs trying to withdraw money and the same thing kept happening. After an hour had passed; I was finally able to get money but not all and on the next withdrawal it was declined because there was insufficient funds because they had processed they payment but I didn't receive anything from the ATM.

It wasn't until 9AM the next morning and after I called every news station in Jacksonville, that they replaced the money. This month (10/31/14) the same thing happened again but I was able to get all my money from the ATM, but my POS purchased was declined and I never got the products I was trying to purchase. The purchased was declined and an hour later it was authorized and taken from my account by Direct Express.

They have refused to replace the money and wants me to fill out tons of paper work anyway. I'm out of $62.79 with no purchased products to take possession of and I want my money back.Desired Settlement: Put the money back in the debit card account NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: on 3/02/2014 at around 11pm I contacted my credit card company to question a transaction. At the time of the call I did not mention fraud, I just wanted to question a transaction, the customer service rep told me she was closing my card and mailing me a new one. I told her please dont cancel my card !! I will be with out money to get home,, I was 3 hours from home and had no cash on me. she says; well I dont care I canceled your card. plus they charged me for a new one. I was stuck 3hours away from my home in the middle of the night. All I did was ask a question I did not report fraud at that time and they closed my card. plus charged me for a replacement That I didnt ask for.

Review: Dir. Express is a company full of incompetent employees. Starting in Feb. of 2014 company failed to deposit social security funds in my account resulting in late payments of bills and severe distress. I made many, many calls to this company and representatives would not cooperate with me and refused access to managers . On one or two occasions a sympathetic representative allowed me to speak with a supervisor. Finally after 6 months I received my social security funds from Feb. In August 2014 again I was informed of suspicious activity on my debit card. I was informed by a Dir. Exp. representative that someone had used my debit card in Pretoria, South Africa. I informed the representative that I was not in South Africa, did not know of anyone in South Africa and did not authorized anyone to use my card. My account was completely deleted of all funds. This matter is causing severe distress. I cannot pay my bills, buy food, put gas in my card, etc. I was informed by dir. express that this matter could take up to 3 months to resolve. I simply cannot afford this situation and again I was put in a precarious situation with my creditors. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help me. When I questioned direct express about an address or full name of supervisor I was told that direct express has no address and my situation did not require an address and that there was no need to speak with a supervisor. I have a severe problem hereDesired Settlement: Department of Treasury and Social Security Administration should terminate contract with this company immediately. If this has happened to me it is probably happening to a thousand others.

Review: I have made repeated requests to have this matter taken care of. There is NO way an individual can contact this company unless by phone. The wait time is always over 5 minutes and having a pay-as-you-go phone service makes this difficult to say the least.

US Direct Express made a charge onto my account due to their error. I was sent a 'new' card and my Social Security Disability benefits were put on a card I didn't/don't have custody of.

When contacted, US Direct Express stated that due to the error being 'their' fault, I would receive a replacement card, as a one-time courtesy, via next day mail. Really, Next Day? This request was made before 0600 on the 3rd of the month. My replacement card was not received until the 8th of the month. I was given excuses of the 4th of July is a holiday. OK, the 4th is/was a holiday, if this was sent 'Next Day' why didn't I get this until the 8th? This should of been received on the 5th, didn't get it until the 8th!

This company will do nothing for the individuals they have control over their money. I am still waiting for a refund I asked for in February 2010 - gee, what year is it? 2013!!

I did not authorize any charges from this company to be taken out of my account, this was an offer from them as a one-time courtesy - obviously, it wasn't.

Made an additional complaint over a week ago, I have heard nothing in response and the credit I am due is not on my account.Desired Settlement: and also an apology. I feel I am due both, from someone other than a customer service individual. Where are the supervisors? I am still waiting for a return call since December 2011.

I want the money back this company stole from me. I am on a fixed-income, I do not give away my benefits. I WANT MY MONEY BACK

Review: This involves a "fraud" claim which has been denied. I have appealed their decision. "Rather than type up everything all over again, I have attached a copy of the correspondences that I've sent to Direct Expess. A detective with [redacted] GA Police Department is investigating this claim and has found discrepancies in the information given by the many reps that we've spoken with at Direct Express. They have given us the runaround, transferred us to numbers that sound like fax machines and we end up being disconnected. They show no sympathy but speak so callously and unsympathetic. These funds are the sole income, and just because they could not determine fraud does not mean that fraud didn't occur. Letters are below:

On January 20, 2014, I made a fraud claim concerning my debit card issued through your company.

I called your company, March 13, 2014 for a status of my claim and was informed that my claim was denied due to “conflicting information”. I was also informed that a letter was mailed out to me of this decision on March 6, 2014, which as of today, March 13, I have not received that letter. I was also informed that I could not appeal this decision unless I had different or additional information to submit. This is totally ludicrous.

1. On January 20, 2014 – I was dining at [redacted]. I was paying for the meal with the debit card in question. I was informed by the waitress that I didn’t have sufficient funds on that gift card to pay for the food. I informed the waitress that wasn’t a gift card; that was a bank card and that couldn’t be right. So I gave the waitress my [redacted] debit card to pay for the food, and proceeded to call the number on my Direct Express card for a balance. I was informed by the automated attendant on the phone that my balance was zero (0).

2. I left [redacted] and came home, and proceeded to call Direct Express to report the fraudulent use. When I was connected to the Fraud Department, I was given a list of transactions made and the dates (at that time, [redacted] was not one of them). She gave me six transactions and 3 of the 6 that were fraudulently made were on 1-19-14 at [redacted] in Stone Mountain, Georgia for $535; back-to-back purchases which should have raised suspicion. I proceeded to tell the lady I didn’t make those charges, that I had no clue what [redacted] was, no one had my card then or ever, and no one knew then or now my PIN. The fraud rep asked if I would be willing to prosecute and I said “Yes, to the fullest”. They deactivated my old card and issued a new one on this same date and stated I should receive it within 7 to 10 business days.

3. After I made the fraud report to Direct, I did a web search of [redacted] in Stone Mountain and found an address of [redacted], Stone Mountain GA. On 1-21-14, I went to that location which was a Chevron Gas Station, talked to a man who stated he was the owner and told him about the fraudulent use of my card. I asked about cameras, and he stated after 24 hours the tapes are erased. (My after thought was that I probably shouldn’t have gone there)

4. On Friday of the next week, January 31, 2014, I received a fraud affidavit form from Direct Express for me to fill out giving a detailed outline of what occurred, and a letter from Direct Express stating they would be doing an investigation and they would replenish my funds if they received my paperwork back within 10 days from the date of which I reported the fraud to them, which was 1-20-14. It also stated that I should make a police report, which I did, Rpt No. [redacted], Off. [redacted]. I received this paperwork from Direct Express 11 days after the report, so there was no way I could get it back to them within the 10 day time frame. I mailed it back to Direct Express on February 1, 2014.

5. On Wednesday, February 5, 2014, 16 days after the new card was reissued, I still had not received it, so I called Direct Express, had to have that card deactivated and pay $13 for an expedited card and $4 for a replacement card. I was told I would get the card by Friday, 2-7-14. On Monday, February 10, I called Direct Express because I did not get the card on Friday, 2-7 and should not have been charged the expedite fee nor should I be charged the replacement fee because I never received the card that was issued on 1-20-14. The expedited card came later in the day on 2-10-14, and the replacement fee was refunded. The expediting fee should have been refunded also, but it wasn’t. While on the phone with the service rep, I inquired about my claim and he stated they just received my fraud affidavit form that day, 2-10-14, 9 days after I mailed it back.

6. On February 18, 2014, I received the card that was supposedly mailed to me on 1-20-14, the first card issued – 29 days later.

7. I was placing calls to Direct Express and the Police department (case assigned to Det. [redacted]) for a status of my case, periodically. Direct would only tell me it was still under investigation; and the police said they couldn’t do anything until they talked to Direct, and when they called they would get the automated answering that “all reps were busy”.

8. During the week of March 3, I received a call from one of your Fraud Department representatives for a statement from me concerning the incident. I gave her the investigating detective’s name from my local police department; and I gave a statement answering any questions she asked. Now, after recounting over in my mind what I stated to her which may have raised suspicion on her part, is that when I stated my Direct Express Card was declined at [redacted] and I paid with my [redacted] card, she asked “is the charge on your [redacted] card?” I told her I had not checked because I was more concerned about the fraud use of $1605 than I was about the [redacted] charge, and it never crossed my mind to check, which is the truth. Okay, so I didn’t react the way your rep would have. I noted, however, that the [redacted] charge did show up on the Direct Express statement and not on my [redacted] card statement. Maybe the waitress did something wrong, I’m not sure, but that is no reason to deny my claim.

Letter #2

Ref: Fraud Claim – Service Request No. [redacted] I contacted your office today, March 18, 2014 and spoke with [redacted] in your 2nd level fraud department along with Detective [redacted] of [redacted] GA Police Department who is also investigating my fraud claim. [redacted] gave us the details over the phone as to why my claim was denied. She stated the fraudulent charges were “ATM cash withdrawals” and a PIN was used. The statement from Direct Express lists the transaction type as “cash purchases”. The conflict I see is not with me, but with your investigation and your statement of transactions. In my experience with bank cards, on the statement of transactions, ATM withdrawals are listed as such along with the withdrawal fee. As I stated before and I state again, NO ONE HAD MY CARD AND NO ONE KNEW MY PIN. Whoever counterfeited my card must have also counterfeited a PIN if a PIN was used. Can you determine what PIN was used?Desired Settlement: Desired outcome is that money be refunded. The slothfulness of their responses to correspondences and other inquiries need to be checked into.

Revdex.com,

I am in receipt of the complaint submitted to your agency by [redacted]'s concern involves a dispute she filed on her Direct Express Card. Below is a summary of the results of the investigation:

On 1/20/14 - [redacted] opened a dispute for three unauthorized transactions (each $535.00) totaling $1,605.00 that occurred on 01/19/2014 at the [redacted].

On 2/10/14 - Direct Express received the dispute paperwork.

On 3/06/14 - Direct Express denied the Claim was for conflicting information. Direct Express sent [redacted] a letter advising her that if she wished to continue her pursuit of the claim, Direct Express recommends that she report the incident to her local law enforcement or contact the Merchant directly.

The transactions that [redacted] disputed are cash purchases where the PIN and Card is required. There were no invalid PIN attempts or PIN changes.

The Direct Express Investigator spoke with [redacted] and additionally attempted to reach the Police Detective [redacted] stated she spoke with. Unfortunately, the investigator was not successful in reaching the detective.

Please have [redacted] contact me directly if she has any questions.

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because: (1) A fraud was committed; (2) I sent in an appeal of the decision and a letter requesting documentation upon which the denial was made and have not received; (3) the investigating detective spoke with [redacted] of US Direct Express who stated transactions were made, the detective went to the location to investigate and found that [redacted] is an ATM machine and unfortunately there were no cameras; (4) the detective called the number on the ATM machine and spoke with a person who read off the transaction and there were no purchases on that card, only a balance inquiry and he faxed her the transaction sheet from the 18th through the 20th of January; (5) the detective called Direct Express but was unable to speak to anyone without my consent so we did a 3-way call for the detective to relay the results of her investigation. The detective spoke with a [redacted] of the Fraud unit, the detective identified herself and gave her badge number. [redacted] was very short and rude to the detective and hung up on her. The detective was trying to get information in order to send a subpoena for records and for who did the investigation because the detective found conflict in the investigation of Direct Express. We did another 3-way call and spoke with Evelyn of the Fraud unit who gave the detective the PO Box address for US Direct. The detective has sent a subpoena and stated she will contact me once she hears from Direct; (6) the information for which Direct states the transaction was made against my account may be appear correct to them, but it is totally untrue. As I stated before, I did not make those transactions and ABSOLUTELY ONE HAVE, HAD NOR HAS EVER HAD MY CARD OR MY PIN. Whoever did this must have replicated my card information from the internet or some other establishment and if a pin was used, they replicated that too! I don't know whether or not I will get my money returned to me, but the fact is I am a victim of fraud. Even the amounts themselves and the timeframe in which they occurred should have been a red flag of something illegal. I am being treated unfairly and what I am going through to get my funds returned in totally unreasonable. It makes no sense that I would fraud my own card. Fraud is very widespread in this day and age, and while I thought I might never be a victim I find myself being accused of victimizing myself.

I received a letter from [redacted] a few days ago which I forwarded to the Direct Express Fraud Investigator. The Fraud Investigator is reviewing the case again.

The Fraud Investigator has not spoken with the with the police detective in relation to this case. The fraud investigator did reach out to the detective on 03/06/2014; however, they were unsuccessful in speaking with her and had to leave a message.

Direct Express mailed to [redacted] the dispute paperwork she requested on 03/26/2014.

I have spoken with [redacted] and indicated to her that once her letter has been reviewed, she will receive a response from Direct Express. Additionally, she has my contact information and can call me at any time.

I also have not heard from Detective [redacted] since my last conversation with Mrs. [redacted] mid April. My last conversation with Detective [redacted] on the same day as with Mrs. [redacted] was to inform me that she had spoken with someone at Direct Express and was subpoenaing them for copies of their investigation because Direct Express's investigation was in conflict with her physical investigation, just as per Direct Express, the statement I made was in conflict with their investigation. I refrain from contacting Mrs. [redacted]-Reeves and Detective [redacted] so much because I know I'm not the only victim these entities have to deal with. My case is important to me and I DO WANT MY MONEY REFUNDED, but here in [redacted] where I live are major criminal acts such as murder, missing people, robberies, etc., and fraud may be on the back burner of Detective[redacted] case load. And I sure, as mediator between the consumer and Direct Express (and possibly other companies), Mrs. [redacted] cannot devote all of her time to my case. I am truly a victim of fraud. This happened in January and it is now the end of May. If my life or my livelihood depended on this money, I would be dead! I declare and declare again and again, I HAVE NEVER GIVEN ANYONE THIS PIN NUMBER AND NO ONE HAS EVER HAD POSSESSION OF MY CARD.

Review: My Social Security benefits are deposited on a debit card. In the literature that accompanied my debit card, it was stated that any complaints that I have concerning use of my card should be sent to DIRECT EXPRESS. For increased security for my account I want to change my password periodically. The system for changing password that DIRECT EXPRESS has on their webpage would not accept the temporary passwords that DIRECT EXPRESS sent to my email. Now I cannot access my account via internet. By not having access to my account I cannot monitor it for unauthorized use.

Twice I have sent letters to DIRECT EXPRESS explaining the fault on their internet webpage. Neither letter has been acknowledged nor has a solution been given to me for accessing my account on internet. I have severe hearing loss and cannot communicate using voice telephone. In my letters to DIRECT EXPRESS I stated that the only means of communicating that I can use are; email, USPS letter service and telephone texting.

I consider the lack of communication from DIRECT EXPRESS to be gross disrespect to my need to protect my debit card from unauthorized use. My first letter to DIRECT EXPRESS was dated 31 JULY 2013.Desired Settlement: DIRECT EXPRESS should correct the fault on their internet webpage and send to me information for reestablishing access to my debit card account.

I am rejecting this response because:

I received email stating that my complaint, [redacted], was not valid or was a duplicate of complaint [redacted].

I consider my complaint valid because US DIRECT EXPRESS has neither rectified the error of a faulty web page nor given to me access to my online debit card account.

US DIRECT EXPRESS sent to me an email address from which I could receive assistance. I sent email to that address on 16 October 2013 and have not received a reply. Please continue working with this complaint until US DIRECT EXPRESS gives to me access to my debit card account and corrects their web page.

thank your for your continued assistance to rectify this problem. As a Senior Citizen of 71 years of age I am a prime target for financial abuse.

I am rejecting this response because: Since 31 July 2013 I have sent two letters requesting information that will enable me to access my DIRECT EXPRESS debit card account online. I have answered Direct Express emails stating that because I have severely impaired hearing I cannot communicate using voice telephone, and requested anew that the remedy to the problem be sent to me. An email address was sent to me from which I could expect help. No reply has been received from personnel at that address.

My access was negated due to an error on the DIRECT EXPRESS webpage. Now I am locked out of my debit card account. I have repeatedly asked for the remedy to the problem of being locked out of my account and Direct Express has not provided that remedy. If DIRECT EXPRESS does not want to provide that remedy, please explain to me why that remedy cannot be given.

I am rejecting this response because: I have already talked to two supervisors got hung up by one of them. im sure their just going to tell me the same thing that their so called investigation could not find any errors of fraud. that if I have any new information or documentation to let them know. let me ask this what documents do you need to get this reversed? I bet you give everyone the run around with no intentions of helping us out. well what your doing is not right and im going to get to the bottom of it. ive already contacted the attorney general ive made a police report. now im going to contact my local news channel and go public this is goverment money that thiefs are taking from daughter who is on social security. how can $812.00 be taken from an atm machine from an address thats not even valid. they told to contact the merchant I would dont you think I would have already done that. There is no merchant! its a made up address when making my police report you have to put the address where the incident took place. I did and they said that it was not a valid address. so im disgusted and fed up ive done my part now its time direct express get their stuff together and do there job.

Review: First, It is impossible to contact Direct Express card service by phone and speak to an agent. (Customer Service: ###-###-####) I had to call all the numbers for other services to finally speak to a person and try to resolve my problems detailed below.

This account and service is for my monthly Social Security Payments. My Card Expired and the first replacement card was invalid, new card number was not in the system. Called many times not able to reach an agent via phone except 2 or three times. FINALLY after days and days of calls I find out that the only option I had after days of trying to get the new card activated through an agent was to order a new replacement card and cancel the one I had in my hand. (This is Aug 23rd 2014 )This was done and I was promised over and over that I would receive my replacement card, via UPS 2nd day delivery. a day before my next SSA payment, PROMISE OF RECEIPT ON AUG 26th 2014.

On Aug. the 26th I called again and found out that it would not be delivered by that day but by the next day for sure. On Aug 27th.

Then on Aug 27th. I call back, having to explain the entire situation over again to a new agent and then to their supervisor. I fins out that the card was not sen via UPS as promised. The agent I spoke with previously DID NOT send the card via UPS 2nd day but by regular mail which means up to 10 days to to receive the 2nd new card.

SO AGAIN, the only option I had was to have them cancel the 2nd replacement card and issue me a 3rd replacement Direct Express Card. By UPS 2nd day delivery. (This call was on Aug 27th 2014)

In the mean time I have been without access to my Social Security Funds for the entire Month of August. AND I AM NOW WAITING FOR THE THIRD REPLACEMENT CARD...Desired Settlement: CANCEL THIS FEDERAL CONTRACT! They do not deserve to be on a list of Federal Contractors or at least sanction them.

1. In the mean time, have them place a prompt in the first menu selection when calling their Customer Service number to Speak to an Operator, this in not possible now. (Customer Service: ###-###-####)

2. Have a means or method when a customer could withdraw funds off the card (VIA THE BANK) when customer gets in a serious dilemma trying to get a card replacement or one activated. This is not possible now.

3. In fact the Company , Direct Express Reports to NO ONE!. If they have oversight then it is impossible to find out who is ultimately responsible for their adherence to Industry Standard Practices and to total lack of customer service. The concept is good but the implementation of their problem resolution Department is horrible. HAVE THEM place on their website a clear mean to escalate serious problems to the Federal Contracting Office. Also Make them, and I mean MAKE Then put your current Revdex.com Score on the front page of their website with all links to file a complaint about their service and Require them to be a Revdex.com Member (which is probably not possible now.) I would not refer them to the Revdex.com for Membership.

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because:

First, The magnetic strip was not damage on the first replacement card that was sent to me. Every time I called and Spoke to a Customer Service Rep. I explain in detail that the card number printed on the replacement card in raised numbers was INVALID. The card was never passed through a machine to verify the card was good. I used the new card activation Number and keyed in the number on the card to access my account over the phone, and to activate the new card as per instructions. The message from the automated system always sad the card number I keyed in was INVALID. This was done many times even with a customer Rep. listening in over the phone to hear the response from the Direct Express Activation over the phone.

Obviously the response back from Direct Express to the Revdex.com the reason for the problems with the first card is just as invalid as the card that was sent to me, I worked in customer service for 35 years and this is the type of Canned Excuse given the customers with complaints to make it look logical. If the person would have review the notes on my complaint then they would have seen that this reason if so far off the mark that it would not resolve the issue.

This hits to the core of Direct Express's customer services problems. Not listening to the customer, bogus responses given to close out a complaint and a general lack of taking ownership of the problems in their Customer Service operations. It's a systemic problem and probably why the Federal Gov. is seeking to re-bid the contract.

I suggest this person re-read my complaint, review the details of the calls I placed to Direct Express and address all the statements of I have made.

Continuous Improvement is a core value of good customer service and you can not improve if you fail to acknowledge the causes of problems in you operations an stirred a customers Revdex.com complaint. Acknowledging their is a problem and working toward valid solutions to change the way customer service operates so you eliminate the problem is the only way to improve you operations. Blaming the problem of defective materials or customers who do not have a real problem is the wrong way to train a customer service reps.to respond to complaints. And then to have a Supervisor responding to a Revdex.com complaint in the same manor is twice as bad. It shows the problem is a systemic issue and runs from top to bottom is your customer service organization.

Shame on you! You are involve in a vital service to Senior Citizens which is paid for our tax dollars. If your organization were in the private sector your services would have been terminated long ago as well as the entire contract for non-compliance.

I expect true customer service and a Standard of Excellence that reflects the dignity our senior citizens deserve for putting a lifetime of labor into this nation.

You can do better.

Review: I honestly can say by my experience with this bank as it is contraccted through the Treasury Department, is really been a dishonorable experience for me. The company does not need to provide any bank statements or requests to prove anything. The companies have either resolved or never did resolve and thanks to a couple of interventions by this bank helped me to recover from any losses through transactions.

I regret my experience with this bank has made me feel distant as a customer and unable to trust my funds with this bank even though they are recognized by the federal government. I wish to do business elsewhere.Desired Settlement: I would like to have my account closed on October 6th 2013 with US Direct Express Comerica Bank.

Review: The [redacted] issued me an US Direct Express card for my direct-deposit benefit payments which I receive on the 1st of every month, Everything was going great until this month in which I noticed my SSI deposit was deposited into my US Direct Express account however the funds disappeared with no trace as you can see here: [redacted] I only made 2-3 transactions totaling in $198.73 after the deposit the remainder of my benefits were taken from my account and there is no trace on the account history as to where the money went, so im assuming it couldn't have been withdrawn because if that was the case it would've shown in the transaction/purchase history.

I have attempted to call US Direct Express customer service number and it rings several times and it automatically hangs-up on the call, My account balance right-now stands at $75.00 due to this inconvenience I am late on most of my bills and my rent payment.Desired Settlement: I have tried almost everything calling there offices, emailing even calling the international number and they have left me no choice, All I want is the remaining amount of my SSI check to be put back into my account.

Review: I am currently disabled and receive my Social Security disability through the US Direct Express card through a Comenca Bank that the government uses for direct deposit. In March, I had a charge that was not authorized by me for a online casino site. It totaled 35.00, which is quite a bit of money for me when I am on disability. I have called and talked to several people and was given to their fraud department and spoke with them. I was sent out a form which I filled out and returned which they say they have not received. I am just in the position that I would just like my $35.00 returned to my account. I do not know what happened to the form they wanted me to fill out but was sent back to the address they had listed on their pre printed envelope they enclosed. I do not know why I have to go through all of this because of someone accessing my card to play poker on this site. The only way I knew of it was because I was sent an email to my email address thanking me for the deposit to play the game. I have explained all of this to them and to no avail. I would like the $35.00 returned to my card as I live on a very limited income as it is. I do not know who used my card or my number or for what reason they would do that but I should not be held accountable and go without my money because of that. I even got a new card with a new number and had to pay extra to have it delivered the next day. I could not afford that but could not afford to go 3 to 5 days without my card either as that is all I have to live on. I think this is a ridiculous amount of time I have to go without that money and that I have to go through all the crap not knowing who used that number for their own pleasure. If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very kindly.Desired Settlement: I would just appreciate the $35.00 credited back to my Direct Express card for the money that was used to play a poker game and was not authorized and not know who did it. I am tired of waiting and did what I was asked to do.

On May 8, 2014, Direct Express spoke with Ms. [redacted] and resent to her the dispute paperwork.

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because: MY Fraud Complaint with Direct Express has not been properly investigated . Neither has it been done in a timely manner. This Fraud case has 2 segments. Segment 1 is several unauthorized payments to [redacted] using my Debit Card. Direct Express has declined to reimburse me those charges without sending Fraud Letter to [redacted] or investigating my claim with them. If Direct Express contacts [redacted] there is a chance [redacted] would refund to me. Segment 2 is several unauthorized ATM Withdrawals using my Debit Card on Sept. 3, 2013. Although I reported this to Direct Express on Sept.4, 2013, Direct Express has not attempted to verify that I have filed Police reports in [redacted] Co. ** and Sheriff's Dept. in [redacted]. This person is now in custody in [redacted] Jail with Holds for these 2 counties for this Felony Case also. I have provided all this info and all other necessary info to Direct Express and have verified by phone that they did receive it. Forty Four days has passed since my most recent notification to Direct Express was submitted and I have no reason to believe Direct Express will Refund my stolen Social Security funds which totals 1,467.00..Regards,

Review: my funds were stolen over a 16 month period while I was incarcerated without my permission or authorization. Direct Express just choose to say differently just because they can. there is no possibility their position is accurate. I was sent a denial letter along with the detailed information needed to file a police report at the same time. rendering it a moot issue for the report.Desired Settlement: to not have it be so easy for funds to be stolen due to lax security protocol. not blame client for same. to reimburse funds taken illegally by an unauthorized party. add security question to prevent what happened to me.
