Default Metabank problems

I have been useing Upsidecards a Metabank Spinoff debit card supplier.
Well i used them the past year and 1 1/2 to 2 years and i have 7-9 debit cards with them that there fully aware of well i started useing them for half.com and braing in about 2k in a 15 day periord and now all sudden they locked the cards and says its Potentially Fraudulent so i call them and they then act like i can only have 1 card to my name even though it was'nt a problem in the past untill now i start makeing money and o its a huge deal now and they want me to fax a id and bill to them to unlock them then they will close all the cards besides one. Luckly i had no money on them besides $16 so im not even going to bother with them i will keep them locked and use my other cards that i had for the past 3 years. It gose to show when u start makeing money thats when all these b***h Co.s want to get in your bussiness i bet i could had 100 cards and never used them and never would they had a problem with how many one has and to top it off they charge 2.50 for each depiost on the card 2.50 for atm w/d .99 just to call them.

So if your useing metabank issued cards like Upside card and Netspend cards and u have more then one dont be shocked if they lock your cards when you start makeing money on them.

I had the same problem with another one of those debit prepaid cards.. they don't like it when you buy a whole bunch of cards for whatever reason. I would do fine for a few months, but then when I bought 12 cards at a time.. they closed them all down. :(

And I only got half my money back..

Not sure the paypals got limted shortly after so i dont know if they refund it back or not.

But i dont see any use in buying simions giftcards unless u lived alongs ways from a store that sells giftcards cause its much safer going in there and buying the giftcard in cash then useing it as soon as u buy it and when your done u can use that giftcard to buy another

sammy, paypal limits paypal accounts. Maybe using metabank was part of the problem when you got limited.

I noticed this card allows you to load your account with a CC. They say your billing details have to the same but how strict are they when it comes to this? If your address is 545 Aspkin Ave. #44 I wonder if the AVS can be fooled by playing with the letters or even leaving out the apt number. For instance, 545 Apskin Ave. or 545 Aspkiin st. or 545 Aspkine Ave.

Netspend sucks. I transferred my from my PP acct one day a few days later checked and saw it was completed. Went to the atm a few hours later and it says NSF. Called customer service and they said they sent it back because my name didn't match. I used a business name on my pp acct. Needless to say, paypal limited my acct.

When you say: "I tried useing simon paying with paypal funds through the plug-in and both times they locked the cards and kept my money "

Are you referring to that you used the simon gift card to link to paypal and then linked ebay account to pay fees from paypal and then they locked your account?
