Walmart money card, has 120dollars they won't refund me. It's been sitting in my Walmart money card account since June. Every time I call, they say it's being mailed in 7 to 10 business days. And the last time I called, they said its the only way we get to talk to you. I haven't called back since. That was in late August. I need that 120dollars, my lights are being cut off on the 17th. It's really thrown me off balance financially the way Walmart did it. After I closed the card. They were being too fast, and playing with my money. Anyone else get ripped off by ppl? Pretending to be legitimate?
