I deposited $4000 on a travel card purchased at AAA for an overseas business trip to avoid using my personal bank cards at ATM machines. The card I purchased on Saturday, my day of travel, was rejected at 3 ATMs abroad on the following Tuesday.
When I called, I was told that the country I was in was now on a list of unacceptable financial institutions. I ended up using my personal debit card and my credit cards while abroad (thank God for Bank of America!). Metabank wanted to charge me $150 for a cash advance through some other section of their financial services.
Thanks but no thanks Metabank. You did enough harm!
Reason of review: Not as described.
Monetary Loss: $4000.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
