Fraudsters Scam Victims with the Green Dot MoneyPak Card

Dark Street

There’s something new sweeping the nation, and unfortunately it’s not a hot dance move. The Green Dot MoneyPak scam is making headlines from coast to coast and bilking victims out of thousands dollars.

What is Green Dot MoneyPak?

 In case you haven’t heard of it, the Green Dot MoneyPak is a prepaid card usually used by people who don’t have bank accounts. The cards are available at retail stores like Walmart and CVS for $4.95. They can be loaded with up to $500 at most retailers or $1,000 if used at Walmart, and then used to shop online or to add money to a PayPal account.

How the scam works

Prepaid card scams aren’t anything new, but this is the latest: A fraudster calls and pretends to be a representative from a utility company or an agent from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The victim is told that he’s in default for a debt and must pay immediately to avoid having his heat shut off, or, in some cases, to avoid deportation. The victim is then told to buy a Green Dot MoneyPak card (usually at Walmart), load it with a specific amount of cash, and transfer the serial number to the swindler who then transfers the money to another card.

Scam artists are big fans of the Green Dot MoneyPak card because it isn’t linked to a bank account and just like cash, it’s untraceable. Unlike cash, though, the transaction can be done over the phone, so it’s totally anonymous, making it just about impossible to catch the criminal. Also, the card offers no consumer protection from fraud, so the victim isn’t getting her money back.

How to spot a scam

We all think we’re scam-savvy, but occasionally a a fraudster gets past our defenses. Now that you know about the Green Dot MoneyPak scam, you’re not likely to fall prey to it, but there’s a new scam lurking around every corner, waiting to pounce. Here’s how to stay safe:

  1. Never give personal information to a stranger.
  2. Be wary of anyone who calls on the phone trying to collect a debt. Look up the phone number of the organization the caller claims to represent (not the number on the caller ID) and check on your account.
  3. Call local police and ask whether residents have reported suspicious phone calls. You might also inquire about door-to-door collectors or salespeople.
  4. Keep in mind that many organizations don’t accept payment via prepaid card. Be wary of anyone who’s asking for this type of payment.
  5. Green Dot Corporation has its own tips for how to avoid fraud, and they discourage consumers from ever handing over a prepaid card number to anyone.
  6. Seniors are considered easy prey to fraudsters, so help keep your parents, grandparents, or other elders safe by informing them about the latest scams. Also, NerdWallet offers some general suggestions for fraud and identity theft protection.

What to do if you’ve been scammed

If you believe you’ve been the victim of a Green Dot MoneyPak scam, call your local police department immediately. Green Dot Corporation encourages you to report the crime to its company either online or by phone, and asks that you have your Green Dot MoneyPak card number and receipt for a reference. The company is very clear, though, that it will not offer a refund when victims have shared the card number with a criminal. You might also consider contacting CrimeStoppers USA at 1-800-222-TIPS. Last but not least, tell everyone you know. When it comes to scams, word spreads faster than photos of wet kittens on Facebook, and you might prevent someone else from becoming a victim.

    I was just approached to be a “Secret Shopper”, but other than that the rest of the scam is the same. Thank goodness I heard about this on the news just this week, to alert me to the phrase green dot money pak, otherwise I might have fallen for the scam.

    • Katharine

      I fell victim to the secret shopper scam. Green dot refuses to work with me to provide even any information about how the card was redeemed. Oh, that was so stupid of me. Now I’m out $2480 dollars.

        Katharine, would you please give full details about the “SECRET SHOPPER SCAM” you were victim of? I just received a $2,350 dollars check. They require me to cash the check and to purchase 4 GREEN DOT MONEYPAK cards, email them the PIN of each card with the amount of money was loaded. Also they are giving me a $200.00 commission. Does this looks similar of what you got? Please advice. Thanks

        • Katharine

          That is the EXACT scam I was victimized with. Do not do it– please! The check is fake! Check the numbers– call the bank. The check will come back as fake if you put it in your bank account. And if you withdrew the money, you will be liable for the TOTAL BALANCE. And there is nothing anyone can do to help you. People who have been victimized or approached in this scam, please contact your state’s attorney general to pursue a civil suit against green dot corporation. They are criminally negligent because they allow their “bank” to be used for these purposes and frequently do not assist police with stopping these thieves.

          • 11omachado2040

            Thank you very much for your help. Sure, I will not cash the check. They will wait for me for ever.

          Thank goodness I researched the info before spending 275.00 on a Green dot MoneyPak Card… I have been scammed to the tune of 2500.00 once before. Not again! ever! Thanks for all the info…Caller claimed I had won 2.5 million dollars and that following these instructions would guarantee the money today and that he would appreciate my sharing with him the winnings…He insisted I wasn’t obligated to, but he would appreciate it…Well he won’t have to worry about that while he is somewhere flying a kite!!!.

    Green Dot is IMPOSSIBLE to work with. I was scammed for $665.20 by someone claiming to be from our electric company. Scary fact is that they knew my due date and the amount due! After it was completed we realized that it was a scam, (much too late), and we are out the money. Someone named Marivi and then Jiggy from Green Dot contacted me via e-mail to inform me that the money was gone and it was my fault for giving out the number. I have my own thoughts on Green Dot and their involvement with these scammers. BEWARE!

    I was recently called by a washington # stating a Corey graham worked for the US Treasurers office and I was eligible for a $9000 grant. All I needed to authorize the release of funds was $200 on a green dot card. Done. So then he gives me a new # to call so that he can authorize the release of funds. When he gets back on the line he tells me that since NV has state tax I would be required to pay upfront a 6% tax on the total so I did on a green dot card of course. After assuring me I wouldn’t be required to pay anymore, suddenly he tells me I am required to pay $1000 more on a green dot card per some insurance reason. I tell him no thanks, I just want my money back totaling $700. He says fine, after you pay me a $500 cancellation fee I will refund your money of $700.NONSENSE!! !! I’ve already c alled

    • Tasnim Afsan Choudhury

      I got same call from washington Dc saying that i’ve been chosen as one of the candidates to be receiving $7000 right after i put 330$ in green.pak and send them the confirmation receipt no. Honestly first I was convinced by their words, then i started asking them legit questions which they could not answer and kept blabbering that it’s not fraud only our benefit to receive. How the world can green.pak verify my identity. bullshit! was about to get in trouble. thankfully saw this same post of my concern.

I’ve already called Jacob Lew ( the real US Treasurer) whom they claimed they worked under to let him know what’s being used under his name. I plan on contacting the Attorney general as well as Law enforcement as i hope you all will do too!!! The bad guys numbers were first (202) 436-9793 (washington #) and (347)573-9347

        I would like to be part of this as well. I lost money believing into a company power pay. They said they needed the number of my green dot to transfer the money to my card, than turned around and said we need an additional 425 dollars to release the secret pass word. I asked to cancel my application and the name daniel the guy was going by screamed at me. Said he could not refund the money. The phone number is 850-665-2225. They keep calling me asking me to borrow the money from friends or family, i told him that i was going to the police and he told me to go ahead that it was pointless and hung up. He called me again today asking for the money and i said i wasnt able to do it, he hung up.

      Deceptive trade means them not telling you about it before hand. Working for a company that sells Green Dot cards, they have numerous warnings that tell you to make sure you know the person you’re sending money to, and to NEVER give out your GD card number. If you were scammed, I’m sorry, but you need to slow down and educate yourself on the scams that are out there.

      Green Dot is under no obligation to refund money that a scammer has stolen, especially because nine times out of ten you willingly gave it to the scammer. You can’t claim that you’re a victim of theft when you tell someone “Here’s my $500, no strings attached.” That’s all on you. The responsibility lies in the consumer, and their willingness to become educated. If you believe your money is valuable, then you will learn from it, and educate yourself so that it doesn’t happen again. Otherwise, it’s going to continue happening. I’d save your time with the lawsuit, I don’t see it getting terribly far in court. Suing someone else over your own lack of information and education is fairly laughable as legal reasoning goes.

    Green dot Moneypak must be responsible for the scams being run. I fell for the secret shopper scam and lost over $2500! I feel so stupid and am filled with regret. I emailed Green dot Moneypak and got an automated response that someone would contact me in 2 days. There is no way to reach them by phone. Guess who contacted me? Another scammer! This company has to take some responsibility for making it possible for these crooks to get away with this. I am absolutely sick that I fell for their line of crap. They were so convincing – they had my social security number, DOB, and where I lived – I didn’t give it to them they wanted me to confirm that they had the right person. Please don’t fall prey to these criminals. If anyone calls and asks you for money – hang up the phone and call the police.

    My daughter was trying to get a payday loan and it was a scam. They asked her to send the first payment to ensure that that she could pay back the loan. Since she did not have any money, they wired her $500 and asked that she put it on a Green Dot card and send it right back to them, to prove some nonsense. That worked fine, she was out of no money. Then they contacted the bank and said that the money was accidentally put into her account and should be in another account. The bank took $500 out of her account and put it in another person’s account. She now has a negative balance. Has anyone heard of this scam? The bank is now researching the reason for taking it out of her account, but are basically saying to bad.

    Hey Everyone, this just happened to me YESTERDAY…..and I am beyond livid, I am actually in the process of trying to sue MoneyPak GreenDot, there should be a clause that protects us from this, when we invest in their merchandise….if something were to happen (especially if it wasn’t our fault that we were being scammed) they should be held liable, and if they choose not to hold themselves accountable that’s fine too, but the LEAST they can do is tell us where are money went too because more than likely it went into a bank account, they OWE US that much!

    If you are interested in being a part of this lawsuit please contact me by email at latoya.godwin@okstate.edu. Please provide exactly what happened and your contact information.

    I received a call yesterday from someone claiming to be from Comcast. They offered upgraded services for our internet and phone, to include international long distance calling and 50 mb download speeds (very tempting, of course), and all I had to do was prepay for one year of Comcast service at a reduced price of $34.99/month (rather than the $59.99 we’re locked in), so a total of $420. This was to be paid with a GreenDot.MoneyPak card. Once I purchased this card, I was to call the Comcast billing department for which, of course, they supplied the number. I’m so thankful to have found this discussion! Beware, beware, and remember – if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

    • Batman

      Good for you! Remember, the phone is not your friend – the phone is your ENEMY. Just remember, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give out personal info over the phone! Tell them to put it in the mail. Use COMMON SENSE.

    I was scammed just this past week and am now out one thousand dollars. I fell for the “Google Wallet vehicle-purchasing” scam, and followed all directions in the proper yet very naive manner. I cannot f***ing believe this. I filed a dispute with GreenDot MoneyPak and am now supposed to wait five business days. We shall see. All I can say is, God will get those f***ing scammers.

    This happened to me last week.I received a call from someone claiming to be a process server, asked for me and asked me to verify my address which he had correct. He stated that he was going to hand me a legal court document regarding to a pending civil lawsuit the following day, I asked him about what it was in regards to, did not answer but directed me to call a number claiming to be a collection agency and that they will answer any question I have, also he gave me a case number that I needed to provide to the collection agency. I called them and provided with the case number, and the representative of the legal deparment who goes under Marcos Ramirez stated that the case was involving a debt owed to wells fargo on an overdraft fee I occured some 5 years ago. This all seemed so legit knowing that he also had my personal info and the amount owed was correct, kind of. He explained that the reason I needed to get the green dot card was because according to him Im not supposed to have a bank account under my name since my overdraft fee went delinquent and sent to the Chexsystems database. According to him if chexsystems were to see that I made a payment using a bank account, they could have it closed. It made sense to me at the time and it all seemed so legit. He wanted me to pay the full amount of 514.13 but told him I couldnt make it all in one lump sum. I asked if we could split the payments of three for each day I was paid and he agreed. So he instructed me to get the green dot card, call him the next day and pay the amount of 114.13 and the other payments of 200 would be done bi-weekly after that. The next day I call and make the “payment”, tonight I find out I have been scammed. Good thing I ran into this, out only 114.13 but its still very frustrating know that the money went to the pockets of some scum bag and not the debt collector. Idiot is expecting my call this friday for the next “installment payment”. Wont be getting that, ever. Feel bad that others are out alot more money than I am.

    Ignorance, stupidity and gullibility can be expensive, can’t it people? For Pete’s sake, grow a pair and EDUCATE yourselves. And about phone calls: this is a no-brainer, kids. If you don’t recognize the name or the number, why would you EVER answer it?? DO NOT ANSWER IT!!

    I am a manager at visa corporation money center. I can see every
    transaction that is done in our system. I can go into my system and add a
    zero to any amount loaded on the moneypak $200 and up. I’ll do this
    then I press the return to sender button but I ask for 20% in return

    3:17pm

    Brion Pennington

    and monitor your money yourself. You go to any local cvs, Kmart,
    walgreens, speedway, rite aid, 7/11, dollar general or family dollar and
    purchase a Green Dot or vanilla MoneyPak card load it with $200 or more
    then I’ll go in my system and add a zero on it then I’ll press the
    return to sender button. This is the card you need its $5. After the
    process is complete you can load the money to a PayPal account or a
    prepaid card debit card or you can get a cash advance from Wal-Mart or
    your bank or you can load it direct deposit to your bank account.

      I am so glad I read this, there is a female on Instagram right now pulling this same stunt, she texts me from 15104474082. She wants $200-300 an she says she will add more to the card. By me not working for months you tend to become in need of help. But reading this same scenario almost word by word I’m glad I didnt . thanks a million

      No you shouldn’t. Because if you are caught, you’ll be too injured, broke and in prison all because you wanted to do things the easy way. Don’t do it.

    Just received a ‘Mystery Shopper’ email scam that uses the moneycard.

      Please elaborate on this scam. I am playing along with a mystery shopper link for McDonald’s. I received a Moneypack purchase request as well. The McDonald’s mystery shopper request is a seemingly valid link from LinkedIn and Monster.

    My husband was told he was the “winner of publishers’ clearing house sweepstakes” and all he had to do was purchase a greendot Moneypak card all he had to do was give them $199.99 to receive the funds he had won. *Beware of this scam and let everyone you know not to allow this scam to take advantage of them and their hard earned money! Do not give anyone the numbers off the back of the card unless it is for something you have decided to purchase.

    I feel so stupid…I feel victim to a scammer… I was so desperate to get a loan to get funds to my son to a specialist I gave in to the con. I lost the money we had for the deposit and was unable to get my little guy to the doctor… I know people will read this and more than likely tear me apart..but u can’t make me feel any lower than I already do… they took all I had than told me “you have no proof that I took this money or that it’s yours” than blocked my number…How can people do this? Heartless soulless individuals…So know I have to watch my 7 year old son in pain

    • pat

      But how can they do that if s.s # is asked in order to activate a visa green dot? I’m confused because I’ve been using this card for years and never had a problem.

    I was just almost scammed by somebody who pretend they were from Capital One pretending that I got a Loan for $3,000 but first I needed to put money on a prepaid card for the first payment towards the loan which I thought was dumb because loan places don’t ask for an advance payment 7866050575
