I should have read the reviews prior to opening my account....but it was too late. Avoid at all costs.

Just crooks

The whole thing is garbage I had a card through them never worked so I cancelled it .. year later they start trying to rip me off adding charges when I never used it and cancelled it now trying to damage my credit and claiming I owe money when they still have my money... True losers imo

Card gets declined more than it works... You never know so its always an embarrassing situation. The Customer Support page is all about them, not you or your card... "This is how you pay us for your money!" STAY AWAY!!! There are much better secure deposit cards to help your credit..

Worst customer service and bill payment practice

I made payment on my account and was told by customer service that because I used a different internet browser to make my payment (BS). My money will be frozen for 14 days. I usually use my cellphone to transfer funds from my debit card to my primor credit card. I used the same debit card to make the payment but used the internet browser website instead of my cellphone to make the payment. totally confusing and some BS to me.

Not to shabby for destroyed credit.

Okay, so I have a few comments about payments for the people who complained about the process. I too, had a major issue paying for the credit card at first but realized something. Instead of waiting the weeks for credit to clear buy using routing/account number on THERE IS A MUCH EASIER WAY TO PAY THAT ALLOWS PAYMENTS AND CREDIT AVAILABLE THE NEXT DAY!! DON’T PAY using Pay using using a debit card and the payments take 1/2 days max to post and apply credit to account. I backed this card and had a $750 limit. I closed the account three days ago with a balance of $310, after having the card for a half year. In order to close the account correctly, call the customer service and be polite and nice. They closed my account and subtracted what i owes them from the final check. So the $750 I backed (minus) the $310 i owed came out to a $440 check that is on its way.
