Pretty much scammers

Very unorganized "company" I applied for a credit card to build up my credit, they asked for more information and said they can't process until I send my W2 or proof of a job, they took out my $250 sooner than I thought. I emailed and called, they never answered. I wanted to cancel everything.I got 2 different confusing emails, one saying they rejected my application and another saying I got approved and they're sending me a card, they also took out my $250, so instead of dealing with them, I called my bank and reported them as fraud and now I'm waiting to get my money back, I also closed my debit card just in case they try stealing money from my account again. If they even send me the card I'm not going to use that at all, ew.

Great card woth extremely low monthly payment requirement. If you know how to properly use a credit card.. its beneficial. Has helped boost my credit & allowed me to gain cresit history over the past year. No complaints.

It's just sad how very inexperience everyone are. So they charged me even before I received the card in the mail. Didn't even use the card until a month later. That was a red flag from the jump. Now, when it came time for me to close the card they tell me that I have to pay the fees because the card was still in use when the fees were apply so therefore no refund. They are thieves and very greedy and dishonest. The only reason I got the card in the first place was because at the time I was very desperate and didn't think things through. For a secured credit card their fees are the worst and it is so ridiculous that they're charging that much for a secured credit card . Credit Union is the way to go.

Horrible card to get!!!

Do not get this card. They say it’s to build credit but it ends up hurting your credit due to the fact that they take so long to process the payment! Even when they do process the payment the funds are not available to you for at least another five business days. I have never had such a bad experience with a credit card company!

Bad customer service, they took away online pay to make it even harder to make on time payments, high fees. Ive made one purchase and paid it off but somehow have accrued $63 in fees even though I never even use the card and they aren't willing to work with me at all and are very rude and unsympathetic. "Banking Black" makes me never want to bank black again because of this bank.'
